Creating Affordable and Reliable High Speed Internet
August 6, 2021 @ 10:00 AM CDT
Are there plans to improve connectivity outside of towns, such as on farmland and other more rural areas?
Do you consider broadband internet as a part of traditional infrastructure?
Will there be funds to upgrade speeds for those who currently have slower speed internet?
AARP Nebraska hosted this Access Live event to discuss affordable and reliable high speed internet in Nebraska. Joining the call was Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts, who discussed current broadband access across the state as well as plans to improve. Governor Ricketts spoke about LB388, broadband internet access in rural areas, and funding to expand broadband across the entire state.
