Working Together

tabletRural communities in the 21st century know all too well the importance of high-speed connectivity.  They also know that full participation in the digital economy involves a lot more than just overcoming technical and financial hurdles: communities need to know where the technology is going; what the core applications and business models are; and how to build community engagement and communication strategies key to project viability and sustainability.

The Alberta Digital Futures Symposium was a two-day workshop aimed at identifying barriers, opportunities and models for accelerating true broadband development in rural communities.  Focused on technical and applications issues,  governance models, and socio-economic considerations, representatives from rural communities, industry, government and the research sector gathered to identify stumbling blocks, best practices, and the models/solutions needed by communities looking to take their digital infrastructure investment to the next level.
