Connecting Michigan Taskforce

Virtual Listening Tour

Broadband is a critical topic for improving the quality of life for all Michiganders. The Connecting Michigan Taskforce (CMIT) hosted a virtual listening and learning tour to discuss broadband and technology in the state. Local and regional stakeholders were invited to participate in order to:

    • Learn more about the Connecting Michigan Taskforce
    • Hear about recent federal and state broadband efforts
    • Provide your insights and feedback to CMIT on broadband issues and solutions in your community

Each session was 45 minutes and included an open Q&A portion with a focus on finding solutions for broadband challenges and identifying issues in Michigan’s broadband ecosystem. You can listen to all or some of these at the links provided in the next section.
