Expanding broadband in rural America

Torys webinar

May 18, 2021 11:00 - 12:00

The pandemic has highlighted the digital divide between urban and rural areas, with many remote and indigenous communities having limited or no broadband access. Join us for this series as members of our infrastructure practice and key industry stakeholders share their latest insights and experiences in solving the broadband infrastructure gap.

Join this interdisciplinary panel as they share perspectives on the different models that federal, state and local governments are using to strengthen America’s connectivity, including availability payment and revenue risk public-private partnerships, auctions for subsidy funding and tagging broadband on to other infrastructure projects such as highways and streetlighting.
