SORT BY Relevancy
Oregon has the highlest level of broadband adoption in the U.S. and the lowest percentage of unserved constituents. This did not happen by accident, but through deliberate policymaking that reach to the highest level of state government. Chris Tamarin, Telecom Strategist for the Oregon Business Development Dept., joins us to talk about how his state became the leader of the pack. Of particular interest is how Oregon has established policies that overcome barriers to greater telemedicine advancement, such as:
* encouraging and supporting the rapid deployment of telemedicine services where they currently do not exist; * requiring health benefit plans to provide coverage of medically necessary telemedical health services; and * requiring Oregon Health Authority to adopt uniform credentialing and privileging standards for telemedicine service providers (pending governor's signature.
Tamarin also gives listeners an overview of how local communities can build more effective relationships with state government that bring more businesses to town. Oregon's broadband policymakers have forged such relationships since 1991.

When Gigabit Nation launched two years ago to help organizations bring faster, better broadband to communities, Chattanooga and its first-in-the-nation gigabit network was the topic of the day. Both the network and the show have come a long way since then.
Jim Ingraham, VP of Strategic Planning at EPB, the Chattanooga public utility that owns the infrastructure, highlights some of their major wins since his appearance on that initial show in July, 2011. Ingraham also talks about upcoming plans as the customer base grows and Chattanooga aggressively leverages various benefits that having the network makes possible.
As more communities put gigabit Internet access into place, Chattanooga has to step up its game in order to maintain its leadership position. Some of the developments of particular interest to listeners are:
how Chattanooga continues to use the network to attract a steady flow of new businesses; the city's marketing savvy positions itself as the hightech mecca of the south; K - 12 and higher education's evolution since gigabit service launched; Chattanooga's efforts to achieve its goals in telemedicine; and staying ahead of the competition.
Could Silicon Valley be replaced as center of the tech universe by the only gigabit city in northern California and its surrounding communities? Lit San Leandro is a gig network launched by a local successful software entrepreneur who could not get the broadband speeds he needed, even in the Valley. The City is now energized to aggressively expand the network to usher in a new era of innovation in the region.
San Leandro Chief Innovation Officer Deb Acosta shares some of the City's vision as it prepares to host a regional workshop to give communities' stakeholders hands-on training in bringing highspeed broadband to constituents. The communities on the east side of the San Francisco Bay see the Lit San Leandro initiative :
cultivating a new generation of technology and bio tech entrepreneurs to take root; uniting East Bay state, local and community colleges into a major center of academic research; creating a nucleus of medical research and telemedicine advancement; and upgrading the overall quality of life of residential and business constituents.
