Despite broadband’s increasingly important role in facilitating many aspects of modern life, rural regions across the US still suffer from poor connectivity. However, with more funding available to connect underserved areas and the fact that fiber networking equipment has become more efficient and cheaper to deploy, utility companies are beginning to explore how they can plug the connectivity gap for their customers.

In this session, Paul Breakman will show how utilities can expand broadband services to underserved areas while increasing revenue and enhancing their reputation. Using real-world examples, Paul will also explain how electric cooperatives turned broadband providers can help local businesses and communities thrive in the new digital economy.
