The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity’s Office of Broadband will be holding a public workshop to hear directly from locals about barriers to accessing broadband internet service.
At the meeting, which will be held Friday, July 7 at the Gulf Coast State College Gulf/Franklin Campus’s computer lab from 2:30 to 4 p.m. EDT, members of the public will be invited to share their experiences, concerns and ideas.
“We will be discussing Florida’s goal to ensure all Florida communities can easily access internet service, online devices and digital skills training,” said a press release about the meeting.
Three virtual workshops will also be held — on July 14 at 10:30 a.m. EDT, on July 24 at 2 p.m. EDT and on July 26 at 2 p.m. EDT. Go to floridajobs.org for more information.
These sessions will help inform on Florida’;s Broadband Equity, Access and Deployment Five-Year Action Plan and Digital Adoption and Use Plan.
