June 17, 2020 from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm (EDT)

As we all adjust to the new normal with today’s pandemic, can we NOW all agree that high-speed internet access is a core necessity? The recent emergency has put nearly 30 million underserved Americans at risk as they struggle to gain access to telehealth, distance learning and other on-line services. The FCC’s number one priority is to close this digital divide and has launched the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF), which will direct up to $20.4 billion to expand broadband in unserved rural areas. Please join partner Tom Cohen, with other industry and regulatory experts, to examine how broadband access has fared in light of COVID-19; and to share that latest on RDOF program milestones, how to prepare, and how to effectively bid and win funding support.
