For Gigabit Community Leaders and Visionaries

GeorgiaGigabitCommunity_logo-FINAL-02WHO: The Georgia Gigabit Communities Summit will bring together state, local and federal officials, as well as leaders and other stakeholders from counties that have gigabit broadband capacity through the NGN network.

SUMMARY: Broadband is critical to economic growth and prosperity in today’s world.  The purpose of the Georgia Gigabit Communities Summit is to help communities that have gigabit capacity market this asset and further develop their potential as Gigabit Communities.
