The following two free webinars are coming up -- if you're working or thinking about working with your local community stakeholders on bringing broadband to your community, you may find these webinars (and other resources) from BroadbandUSA<https://www2.ntia.doc.gov/> of interest.
BroadbandUSA Practical Broadband Conversations
Topic: Leveraging National Data to Jumpstart Your Broadband Plan
Date: Wednesday, February 15 from 2:00-3:00 p.m., Eastern Time
Overview: The U.S. Census Bureau, NTIA and FCC collect and make data about availability, subscriptions and usage publicly available. Join us to do a "deep dive" into federal datasets, including the FCC Form 477 filings from broadband providers that show broadband availability, speed and technology, and NTIA's Digital Nation data, which represents the largest comprehensive national household survey on computer and Internet use. We'll also highlight how the BroadbandUSA Connectivity Initiative will leverage this data as part of its online assessment tool. Hear from the experts and ask your questions.
BroadbandUSA Connectivity Initiative
Topic: Connectivity Initiative (CI) Update
Date: Thursday, March 9 from 2:00-3:00 p.m., Eastern Time
