Dear OSCC Members and Colleagues:
There is currently an effort to bring high-speed internet access to rural communities across Oregon and the country, including an effort to develop new broadband technologies that would increase access to and the affordability of high speed internet. One of these technologies is the utilization of TV white space spectrum for broadband deployment. We understand that the Connect Americans Now coalition is reaching out to organizations asking for support.
OSCC is evaluating this issue and would like to receive feedback from members. If your chamber has been contacted about this issue, please let us know. We would like to better understand how this would impact communities across Oregon. Feedback can be emailed to Jessica Chambers.
