Affordable Access Strategies for Low Income Neighbors

Page history last edited by kelly@techgoeshomecha.org 5 years, 4 months ago

Description:

Digital inclusion leaders in many U.S. communities now have the opportunity to connect at least some low income households with affordable broadband options -- for example, through cable and telecom discount programs, nonprofit 4G resellers, or community wireless networks.

Hi Clayton - I understand you wanted some moderator question ideas. A few that come to mind:

- The usual "tell us about your organization" one
- What are three key ingredients to a successful strategy?
- What is the number one lesson learned in implementing these kinds of programs?
- What do you wish you saw more of when implementing these programs?

Looking forward to seeing everyone in KC!
