Municipal Broadband Lunch’N’Learn

HomeNetworkBring your lunch to City Hall this Thursday and listen to a presentation by Christopher Mitchell on the prospects for a municipal broadband network in Seattle. The presentation runs from Noon to 1 p.m., June 18th, in the Bertha Knight Landes room on the first floor of City Hall.

Mr. Mitchell will offer his thoughts on the heels of the City’s recently released broadband study, which concludes building one in Seattle would be prohibitively expensive and would not pencil out.

Mitchell is a national expert on community networks and approaches, having authored the most in-depth case studies of how a variety of communities have already moved forward on municipal networks. He’ll address anything from why local governments have to get in the game to which technologies are most appropriate where.

Bring your questions.

As Vice-Chair of the Council’s Technology Committee, I am pleased to host this presentation along with the Committee’s Chair, Councilmember Bruce Harrell, and Sabrina Roach, of Brown Paper Tickets.

Keep in touch…
