Broadband project draws national attention

About a year ago, the South Suburban Mayors and Managers Association attended a Broadband Communities Economic Development Conference in Danville, Va. At about the same time, we were negotiating contracts here for fiber broadband construction.

Now, just a year later, much of that construction is complete. And, after hearing about our work to bring fiber to the Southland, Broadband Communities is bringing the conference to the Tinley Park Convention Center, one of our new key anchor sites in the fiber network.

“Building on the success of our first regional conference on broadband and economic development last November in Danville, Broadband Communities will host its second regional conference in Chicago on Nov. 5-7, 2013,” said conference Chairman Jim Baller. “The conference will focus on the extraordinary experiences of dozens of communities in America’s Midwestern heartland, including Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.”…please click here to read Edward Paesel’s editorial column in the Times.
