The Utah Broadband Advisory Council recently celebrated its 5th Anniversary. Since 2011, stakeholders across Utah have proven that unprecedented partnerships are central to economic development in Utah as the council has met to promote broadband expansion. Council members are helping ensure that businesses and residents have the services they need to participate in a smart and growing economy. DTS is proud to be partnering with GOED and various other organizations to promote broadband adoption in Utah.
The Council was formed as a forum for broadband stakeholders in Utah to discuss the status of broadband adoption and deployment across the state. Initially, the Council included stakeholders in economic development, state and local government, education, health care, technology-related businesses, tribal entities, transportation, and public safety. Soon after its inception, the Council grew to include broadband providers, recognizing the importance of industry collaboration.
