Broadband has long offered the prospect that rural residents will be able to take advantage of something generally available only in urban or suburban areas: the best that higher education has to offer. Is broadband living up to this educational promise? Also, what role can primary, secondary and specialized education play in helping turbo-charge the FCC's National Broadband Plan?
Confimed Speakers for this Event Include:
- Greg Barlow, Chief Information Officer, Anne Arundel County Public Schools
- Frank Gallagher, Cable in the Classroom

The event is moderated by Drew Clark, Editor and Executive Director of BroadbandCensus.com. The breakfast begins at 8 a.m., followed by a discussion, beginning shortly after 8:30 a.m. and ending by 10 a.m. Join the conversation for an engaging and in-depth examination of broadband - one of the most vital topics of our day.
