CFE Virtual Forum Series:

The pandemic has made clear that good broadband access is essential in the 21st Century. But it is not available in many northern and remote communities, and unaffordable to many in the south. Join a panel that explores the needs, roadblocks, and solutions, with examples from elsewhere in the world where broadband access is seen as a human right.
