The Lincoln County Regional Planning Commission is pleased to present a program on municipal and regional broadband utility models with guest speakers Jeff Christensen, President/CEO of EntryPoint Networks, Kerem Durdag, Chief Operating Officer at GWI, and Tracy Scheckel, Marketing and Public Relations Director at OTELCO, on Monday, March 11 at 4 pm.
Christensen oversees R & D, business development and strategic partnerships at EntryPoint, and has helped develop a municipal utility in Ammo, Idaho and other communities. EntryPoint Networks provides a Network Management platform designed for municipal networks. Their automated open access platform separates broadband infrastructure from the services running over it to create a competitive and innovative marketplace of services.
This is an educational session presented as part of our ConnectME community planning process. In addition, Peggy Schaffer, Small Business Advocate with the Secretary of State’s Office and Maine Broadband Coalition coordinator, will provide an update on broadband legislation.
The meeting is open to the public, at no charge.
