As the number of electric cooperatives evaluating broadband continues to grow, many are wondering what resources, tools and expertise are needed to make the best decisions for their cooperative and the communities that they serve. During this half day workshop, participants will hear from industry experts who will discuss technology considerations, the feasibility of implementation and turning a study into an executable project. Participants will also hear from cooperatives who have deployed broadband in their territory as well as some who have opted not to. Key focus on:
