Thank you for making NCC’s first virtual conference a huge success! Check out the highlights below.

On July 20th and 21st, Next Century Cities hosted our first virtual conference, Broadband is the Electricity of the 21st Century. Let’s Light Up Every Community. 

The conference kicked off on July 20th with an academic pre-conference featuring five of the country’s leading scholars on all things broadband. Then, on July 21st, we hosted a day filled with engaging panels and presentations to help us explore why broadband is the electricity of the 21st Century. It featured local leadership from states across the country including California, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Ohio, South Dakota, Texas, and Virginia.
