Chris Mitchell, Director of Community Broadband Networks, Institute for Local Self-Reliance

Local residents, business owners, and community leaders face many challenges when addressing insufficient Internet access. Not only do these individuals need to understand what solutions are available to them, they must identify and apply the solution that best fits their needs. This webinar will explore the trade-offs, capacity, and economics behind common Internet access technologies, including cable, DSL, mobile wireless, fixed wireless, satellite, and fiber optic. Attendees will leave with the confidence to engage in broadband discussions, debates, and efforts to improve broadband Internet access.

The Merit team will provide a Cisco Webex link for all registrants to participate live closer to each webinar series’ starting date. Please ensure you provide the best point of contact email when filling out your registration.
