Description

This day-long summit will bring together critical stakeholders in Alaska from the U.S., state, and local governments, Alaska Native communities, federal agencies, industry, and other key partners to discuss coordination on broadband efforts as Alaska prepares to receive significant broadband funds from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

Connecting all Alaskans to affordable, reliable high-speed internet is critical to our economic stability and this event will provide an opportunity for us to discuss ways we can work together to efficiently and effectively utilize these federal dollars to the maximum extent. The day will feature a series of panel discussions about planning efforts, needs, and challenges.

Please note that this will be a hybrid event, and a virtual option will be provided for those that cannot attend in person.
