Broadband Leadership Summit Postponed Until December 2012
WRITTEN BY ALLISON WAY, SENIOR COPYWRITER & CHIEF EDITOR
On December 6-8, 2011, leaders from the Kansas City area were planning to unite in order to discuss innovative economic development, Google Fiber and job creation at the Kansas City Broadband Leadership Summit.
The event will bring together Kansas City movers-and-shakers like David Sandel, Mayor Joe Reardon, Mayor Sly James, Herb Sih, and many others. Topics at the event will include the importance of high-speed fiber infrastructure to the Kansas City area, competition in the marketplace, how data speed is relevant to businesses and residents and how public-private partnerships can help cities deploy this type of infrastructure.
What was regularly scheduled to take place on December 6-8, the Broadband Leadership Summit is now postponed until December of 2012. The Broadband Leadership Summit says that the schedule has changed due to a delay in Google's scheduled rollout of its ultra-high-speed fiber project.
