Broadband feedback event set

MARQUETTE — The Michigan Consortium of Advanced Networks will hold listening sessions across the state to gather feedback on the best ways to strengthen broadband access and connectivity in the state.

MCAN Vice Chairman Gavin Leach of Northern Michigan University will host the Upper Peninsula listening session. The event is scheduled from 2-3:30 p.m. Thursday, May 24, in 1318 Jamrich Hall at NMU.

Gov. Rick Snyder created the MCAN to develop a roadmap for improving broadband so Michigan can leverage technology to improve its place in the digital economy. The listening sessions are part of the process of formulating final recommendations. MCAN’s report is due to the governor by Aug. 1.
