Statewide Broadband Summit
ALBUQUERQUE--You are invited to the Statewide Broadband Summit! Help develop a plan to ensure broadband for all New Mexicans.
In today’s society, broadband is becoming as fundamental a utility as water, electricity, and phone service. We face challenges in providing affordable and reliable broadband access, and ensuring that New Mexicans have the skills to use such technology. There are also exciting initiatives and collaborations underway, ones that with the right planning and support could help New Mexico bridge the digital divide.
The New Mexico Broadband Summit provides you the opportunity to share ideas about the state’s broadband future. This statewide collaborative planning session will produce a platform of recommendations regarding:
- Digital literacy
- Economic development
- Tribal issues
- Governance and collaboration
The summit’s recommendations will go policymakers and other leaders in broadband initiatives throughout the state, and will contribute to a statewide strategic plan on broadband.
