North Carolina Hearts Gigabit: An Interactive Idea Exchange 2018

NC Hearts Gigabit!

Walker is proud to be a Megabit Sponsor for this event, where Skinny Wire magazine will be featured.

What steps does North Carolina need to take now to grow digitally connected and economically resilient local communities?  NC Broadband Matters, a nonprofit formed in 2017, seeks to answer this essential question through the engagement and education campaign NC Hearts Gigabit (North Carolina “loves” Gigabit).  A technology neutral and vendor agnostic advocacy platform, we work to attract and support universally available, affordable, reliable, high-capacity Internet to network resilient local economies across North Carolina. This inaugural conference will feature inspiring community broadband network deployment success stories from around the state: How to build it, finance it and use it to deepen local cultures of connectivity and productivity for the 21st century.  Attendees will benefit from hearing a playbook of actionable steps they can take back to advance their own local broadband and economic development agendas.  Join us on Friday, April 20th at 9:00am.
