Utility Webinar Series:
Broadband and Economic Development
Broadband plays an increasingly important role in economic development and is now considered a critical part of infrastructure. Yet, there remains a digital divide between communities—some with little to no connectivity and others with fast, reliable networks which they have been able to leverage into an economic development asset. The advent of the COVID 19 Pandemic has reinforced the essential nature of broadband. This webinar, sponsored by OEDI and Ice Miller, will provide participants with an overview of the impact that emerging technologies are having on broadband within Ohio’s communities and the various approaches to expanding broadband access. The webinar will update participants on the new efforts in Ohio and the nation to support broadband and learn how to assess which approach best accommodates community needs and capabilities. Examples of locally owned, municipal network models (both commercial and residential), private, and public-private partnership models will be provided by community leaders who have implemented such approaches locally. Considerations for network construction, such as rights-of-way issues and permitting processes, will also be explored.
