Student Opportunity Gaps

Spurring Investment in Next-Generation Broadband

By August 14, 2015 No Comments

Technology has become a key component in educating today’s students. Yet in rural Minnesota, broadband access remains sparse.

MREA is working alongside the Blandin Foundation to address this. In the monthly webinar, “Advocacy Groups — Who Are They?” hosted August 13 by the foundation, they discuss how to spur investment in next-generation broadband infrastructure while engaging communities to adopt next generation technology applications.

The stakes are high, and there is a “rural imperative for a new connected countryside.” View the webinar.
