Broadband Action: The CBAN Podcast
How is it that the U.S. still faces challenges around the adoption and accessibility of fast, reliable, affordable, and universally available broadband? How does broadband access – or the lack of it – impact the lives of those who live in underserved or untapped communities? Hosts Curtis Dean, Jon Willow, and Todd Kielkopf – founders of the Community Broadband Action Network – take on the issues faced by community broadband providers and advocates, from policy and its real effects on local communities, to the commercial landscape and how technology can help or hinder the drive to digitally connect every U.S. resident to the internet in a meaningful way. With special guests from across the spectrum of broadband (no pun intended!), expect a lively, round table-style conversation in every episode. Who knows? You may even learn something.
In an interview borrowed from a CBAN Member Spotlight, Curtis Dean with CBAN chats with Justin Stinson of Liberty Communications, a community focused broadband provider in Iowa. Liberty has been very proactive in not only improving services to their traditional customer base but expanding to new areas in need of better broadband service.
