Since the inception of the NGN network, our team has been actively involved in supporting and educating economic developers on the benefits of gigabit connectivity. This passion for rural economic development led NGN to host the Georgia Gigabit Communities Summit last year. The Summit brought together local leaders and stakeholders from communities with gigabit capacity to help them market their infrastructure assets and further develop their potential.
This year we continue our commitment to economic development by being a proud sponsor of Broadband Communities’ 6th Economic Development Conference, taking place November 7 – 9 in Atlanta, GA. The focus of the regional conference will be helping communities understand what they can do to maximize the economic benefits of advanced broadband networks, as rapidly and efficiently as possible.
We invite you to “Save the Date” for the conference and look forward to sharing additional details on the event as the agenda is finalized.
