The Town of Fairhaven, in collaboration with the Massachusetts Broadband Institute (MBI), have embarked on a Digital Equity Planning project to improve broadband access, adoption, and digital literacy in the Fairhaven community. As a part of this initiative, CTC Technology & Energy will be hosting a public Broadband 101 and Digital Equity Information Session. This meeting will introduce what we’ve learned in the planning process to date, why broadband is critical to Fairhaven residents, a brief overview of the technological evolution of broadband including present and future needs, and forthcoming funding opportunities. We’ll conclude with a Q&A session.
The session will take place Tuesday, January 30th from 6:00 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. Residents may attend in person at Town Hall or join the Zoom Webinar: https://us06web.zoom.us/j/82107580199 Or call 1-929-205-6099 or tune in to FairhavenTV.com and Channel 18 to view.
This event will be especially helpful for individuals and organizations who work with the Fairhaven community. If you want to know more about the ins and outs of digital access and think about how you can help boost digital equity in our community, we encourage you to attend this information session. For more information, please contact Derek Frates at firstname.lastname@example.org.
