CMC: Bridging the Digital Divide II (Urban)

March 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

In November 2020, the Columbus Dispatch reported, “Unlike in rural areas, where high-speed internet service is scarce, the city of Columbus is saturated with broadband internet providers who give residents multiple options to hook up to fast service. But many city residents still don’t have high-speed service. That’s likely because the high price is keeping many low-income households from affording it, a report commissioned by the Columbus Foundation found.” Join our panel to learn more about Governor Dewine’s BroadbandOhio office, created in March 2020, which is “dedicated to improving access to high-speed internet across Ohio”, as well as, what others are doing to overcome the hurdles to fulfill this mission and link those most in need to reliable internet service.

Featuring Autumn Glover, President, PACT at OSU Wexner Medical Center and Dr. Talisa Dixon, Superintendent, Columbus City Schools, with host Kerry Charles, Anchor, NBC4. Additional panelist to be announced.
