The Chicagoland Broadband Communities Meet Up supports and advocates for broadband expansion projects in the Chicagoland metro area and throughout the State of Illinois. We bring together tools, research, strategies, owners/managers/coordinators of current projects with a focus on getting projects up and running and connecting last-mile customers to gigabit speed fiber and wireless resources. We support the projects that move broadband network development and broadband adoption forward and encourage vertical use cases such as education, safety, health and economic development. We also tie together broadband expansion projects with other digital literacy and inclusion projects both locally in Chicago, throughout Illinois and nationally. If you are working on, planning or interested in a broadband expansion project anywhere in metropolitan Chicago or in Illinois, this is the Meetup you should join and participate in.
