LinkWISCONSIN Broadband Planning Symposium

The 2014 Broadband Planning Symposium is part of the LinkWISCONSIN initiative to make Wisconsin more competitive through advanced availability, adoption, and use of broadband technology. The Symposium will bring together diverse stakeholders and provide an opportunity to build partnerships that can be taken to work toward a common goal of enhancing broadband across the state.


The Symposium goals are to:

  1. Explore how Wisconsin’s broadband landscape is changing.
  2. Share perspectives on the need and expansion of broadband from educators, providers, and other speakers.
  3. Network with stakeholders in the broadband planning process.
  4. Raise awareness about the LinkWISCONSIN initiative and the tools that can be used for broadband planning and policy making.
