Broadband Infrastructure in Colorado

 

Broadband is the backbone for Colorado's booming tech economy. Come learn about the latest projects and plans for this critical digital infrastructure. 

Join us for a discussion on the importance of broadband on education, public safety, health care and economic development, and why it's different than other key infrastructure.

We'll hear what the State of Colorado Governor's Office of Information Technology is focused on, funding, regulation and much more.
