The Schools, Health and Libraries Broadband Coalition (SHLB) Annual Conference has become a yearly confab that draws many of the key players in broadband stimulus-funded projects. Our listeners hear from four of those who give us highlights of how far we've come since these projects launched:

  • 2:00  Maria Alvarez Stroud - Director, Center for Community Technology Services, University of Wisconsin - Extension
  • 2:15  Kevin Hughes - VP Sales & Marketing, Virgin Islands Next Generation Network
  • 2:30  Tara Thue - Manager, Utah Broadband Project
  • 2:45  Jane Patterson - President, Rural Telecom Congress America

We get some of the inside details on several high-profile broadband deployment and adoption initiatives made possible by NTIA and RUS grant awards. Our guests discuss what they have found to be effective making better broadband and adoption a reality. They also talk about what's next for their projects.
