Thank you for joining us at our regional broadband summit, Digital Southwest, in Mesa, AZ. This full-day event brought together broadband champions from federal, state, and local government, as well as community leaders and broadband policy experts from the Southwest and across the nation. The event featured stories of broadband deployment success, digital inclusion initiatives, financing opportunities, and more.

Participants heard from mayors, other city officials, state and federal policymakers, rural and tribal representatives, as well as national broadband experts. From financing to infrastructure development to smart cities, panelists shared a wealth of practical information.

Participants were also able to take advantage of NTIA’s connected event on broadband planning and funding the following day. See below for details.
