The Summit Series #5: Wired For Success - Nevada In Action

By Jeremy Thacker

Expanding Nevada’s broadband infrastructure is a huge undertaking, but one that can be accomplished with the right community leaders working together toward the common goal.

In this fifth installment of our 6-blog series, Wired For Success: Nevada In Action, Connected Nation’s Michael Ramage discusses the importance of full community involvement and highlights “informed action” as the key to success.

 “One of the things that is so important is to get the entire community thinking about technology and really making it a priority. We’re looking at the entire state and there’s a large portion of the state that lives in one county. Once we get to our community and break it down to our community and start to think about the aspects of our community and how it works in our community, then we start to realize what those numbers are and how it impacts our community to help us get to the informed action. You’ll hear that word or see that word quite a bit. The purpose of our maps is to help communities, help empower communities to make decisions and figure out ways to get broadband access, to get broadband adoption, and to improve broadband use in the communities. And that’s really the ultimate goal.”

Connect Nevada’s latest broadband maps break current available service down by speed and platform. Broadband mapping is a fundamental key to taking informed action at the community level. Learn more about Nevada’s current Broadband Landscape by exploring the maps for yourself.
