Blandin Community Broadband Program Webinar

by Jackie S on March 27th, 2014

Please join us April 10, 3-4pm, for the next Blandin Community Broadband Program Webinar: “Making 700 MHz Wireless Work in Rural Minnesota.”

Kevin Larson, general manager of Consolidated Telecommunications Company (CTC) in Brainerd, will provide an overview of the potential of 700 MHz wireless Internet for rural Minnesota. Because 700 MHz is located in the sweet spot of the wireless spectrum, combining power with bandwidth, it is viewed as an excellent choice for rural wireless deployment. As a licensed frequency, interference is kept to a minimum. As the owner of the 700 MHz spectrum across a swath of central Minnesota, CTC is making plans to deploy this technology and has filed an Expression of Interest for the prospective FCC rural broadband funding.

Join us for this informative webinar that will provide an overview of this critical wireless technology and CTC’s hopes and plans for deployment. Learn about the advantages of the technology and the barriers to deployment. Find out who owns this important spectrum in your area and what community leaders might do to encourage deployment across rural Minnesota.
