The Broadband Summit will kick off the Telecommunications Industry Association’s (TIA) annual Conference and Exhibition, TIA 2012: Inside the Network – June 5-7 at the Gaylord Texan Hotel in Dallas.
The event will bring together leaders spanning the state and sectors such as government, telecom, business, tribal, healthcare, and education to focus on strategies for increasing access in the state’s rural areas and growing digital literacy among vulnerable communities.
Connected Texas research shows that less than half – 48 percent – of the state’s rural residents subscribe to broadband, cutting them off from the economic, educational, and quality of life opportunities available through a broadband connection.
