Staples to speak at broadband summit
AUSTIN -- Connected Texas has announced that Texas Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples will serve as the keynote speaker for the Texas Broadband Summit Tuesday, June 5, at the Gaylord Texan Hotel located at 1501 Gaylord Trail in Dallas.
This unique statewide broadband conference is bringing together government, community, business, and industry leaders with a focus of “Getting Every Community Online.” The conference also will explore the economic opportunities broadband can offer Texas communities.
Registration is open and details are being confirmed for the state’s very first Broadband Summit. The statewide event is being hosted by Connected Texas and the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) to kick off the TIA 2012: Inside the Network annual conference and exhibition.
The preliminary agenda reveals the event’s focus on promoting and supporting broadband access and adoption and use across Texas, as well as tackling hot broadband topics like the FCC’s Universal Service Fund. Two panels are planned to discuss Broadband Availability and Broadband Access, respectively.
The Texas Broadband Summit: Getting Every Community Online is free. For details about the summit or to register now, visit http://www.connectedtx.org/broadband-summit.
