If we had unlimited access to high speed Internet, what opportunities would that connection provide for our communities? How can we start planning now to make sure that all North Carolinians benefit?

At the ReCONNECT to Technological Opportunity Forum, participants will explore what their communities can do to leverage high speed Internet in an equitable way. We will start the day by entering a “time machine” to the future, to a time when everyone has access to broadband. We will hear how both rural and urban communities are using broadband for economic growth.

This will be a working forum. We encourage community teams to come together, learn national and local best practices, and help design a plan for their community throughout the day.
