On Wednesday, we hosted our second annual Utah Broadband Provider Roundtable at the Hilton Salt Lake City Center. The event was an opportunity for broadband providers across the state to meet and discuss the progress of broadband deployment and adoption in Utah.
The day was filled with great discussion and the opening remarks by Lieutenant Governor Greg Bell and the keynote address from David Bradford were both very insightful. We were able to record some of the sessions, which can be found below. We would like to thank CenturyLink, Comcast, the Utah Rural Telecom Association, and Emery Telcom for their generous sponsorship of this event.
