Session Description:


In Kansas City, Google Fiber has been a digital inclusion catalyst. Community anchor institutions, non-profits and the entrepreneurial community are working more collaboratively than they had been to increase broadband adoption, broadband access and digital literacy. Join us for a discussion of how Google Fiber's presence and roll-out process focused new attention on an old situation.
