Broadband Summit

October 3, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

CONNECTING COMMUNITIES: Building a Digital Future for All

Join us for the highly anticipated Monterey Bay Economic Partnership’s Regional Broadband Summit on October 3, 2023. This regional event aims to unveil MBEP’s comprehensive white paper on the current state of broadband in the region. The White Paper sheds light on the Broadband Initiative’s Hybrid Broadband Model as a solution for locations that potentially will remain unserved and bridge the divide between rural and urban communities across the Central Coast.

The summit will facilitate a dynamic discussion amongst stakeholders, exploring the advantages and limitations of the diverse broadband technologies available. With a focus on collaboration and innovation, this summit promises to be a vital platform for shaping the future of connectivity in the Monterey Bay Region. As a highly regarded liaison between ISPs and local and state officials, MBEP has led the regional Digital Equity mission for many years and continues to play a crucial role in ensuring that funding reaches cities and ISPs in Monterey, San Benito, and Santa Cruz counties on every level possible. With the support of local agencies and ISPs, MBEP is confident that we can bridge the digital divide together.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to be part of a collective effort to revolutionize broadband accessibility and utilization!
