Tennessee Broadband Summit Conference
The National Telecommunications and Information Administration’s BroadbandUSA Program, in partnership with the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development, will host a Broadband Summit about ‘‘Creating Partnerships to Ensure Access for All’’ on March 20, 2018. Speakers and attendees from Tennessee, federal agencies, and across the country will come together to explore ways to increase broadband deployment and improve broadband adoption to advance their overarching business, social, economic, and community goals. This Summit will highlight the initiatives and outreach driven through the newly enacted Tennessee Broadband Accessibility Act, which promotes broadband deployment thorough grants to providers, tax credits, deregulation, and education.
The Summit is open to the public. Pre-registration is requested, and space is limited. NTIA asks registrants to provide their first and last names and email addresses for both registration purposes and to receive any updates on the workshop.
