A Look at the CRRBC Virtual Conference

Canada’s Rural and Remote Broadband Conference Series offered a two day virtual event featuring community, government, and industry stakeholders addressing the challenges of rural broadband and options to address the gaps in internet connectivity. This topic, always important, has reached new levels of significance in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic. The conference focused on the challenges and realities of creating a sustainable digital economy for the rural and remote regions of the country.


During the event, CENGN’s Senior Manager of Broadband Programs, Kirby Koster, joined other rural broadband leaders on a panel to discuss the question of validating and measuring a rural project’s technical success. Watch the recording of the panel below:
