Region’s broadband capacity to be discussed at meeting

A May 1 meeting is scheduled in Fredericksburg to discuss the state of the region’s broadband network.

The University of Mary Washington, which has been working on a regional economic development plan, is organizing the event at the Jepson Alumni Executive Center in an effort to ensure the region has the broadband network it needs to participate in the “knowledge economy of the future” and to “foster innovation and entrepreneurship.”

Sandie Terry, broadband program manager for the Center for Innovative Technology, will discuss broadband technologies and capabilities and the importance of the technological infrastructure for economic development. Members of the business community will also discuss their needs.

The meeting will begin at 7:30 a.m. with a continental breakfast and will end by 10:30 a.m. RSVPs are requested by emailing Linda Worrell at
