Join Us and Spread the Word: Broadband 101
Link Up Idaho and the Idaho Office of Broadband are thrilled to introduce Broadband 101, a groundbreaking statewide initiative and event series aimed at bringing high-speed internet access to every corner of our beautiful state.
Broadband 101 is here to educate attendees about the benefits of high-speed internet, but also to hear the thoughts and ideas on how we can improve broadband expansion in your area.
In today’s digitally-driven world, high-speed internet has become an indispensable tool for education, healthcare, business, public safety, and daily communication. Broadband 101 will explain the benefits that high-speed internet can bring to your community, including:
- Economic Growth
- Telemedicine and Healthcare
- Improved Communication
- Public Safety
- Enhanced Education
Obtaining funding for broadband projects in your rural community might seem overwhelming, but Broadband 101 is here to help guide you through the process. We will provide information on available funding options, grants, and support to make your community’s broadband dreams a reality.
We believe that the best solutions come from those who experience the challenges firsthand—YOU! We want to hear your thoughts and priorities on broadband expansion in your community. Your feedback will shape our future policies and initiatives to ensure that no one in Idaho is left behind in the digital age. Some ideas for engaging your community include:
- Community Meetings: Participate in our interactive community meetings where you can share your experiences, concerns, and ideas about broadband expansion.
- Online Surveys: For those unable to attend in person, we offer online surveys to gather your valuable input conveniently.
- Broadband Action Teams: Join or create local task forces to drive broadband initiatives within your community, working in collaboration with Broadband 101.
We would like to ask you to join us at Broadband 101, and together, let’s unlock the immense potential of high-speed internet for all Idahoans.
