The City of Sequim is hosting a Community Broadband Meeting on Wednesday, October 29 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. The meeting can be accessed via the web at https://zoom.us/j/93894446146, by phone at (253) 215-8782 with webinar ID: 938 9444 6146, or on Facebook Live at https://www.facebook.com/sequimwa.gov/.
Experts in the broadband and telecommunications field will be on hand to discuss the future of broadband service in Sequim and the east end of Clallam County and how it could affect individuals and the community. Meeting facilitators will answer questions and take comments from participants. The discussions will center on a wide range of topics including current and future service needs (service expansion, higher speed data communications, more portable and mobile communications, provision of residential and business services and applications) and infrastructure availability concerns (expansion of fiber optics and wireless systems, availability of new networks, extension of existing networks, and network interconnections.)
Broadband communications services for Sequim and Eastern Clallam County are not uniformly available and have created challenges for residents, businesses, organizations, and institutions. The Sequim Community Broadband Meeting will bring together residents, businesses, non-profits, institutions, and broadband providers within the County and will help to answer the questions: What are the current and future broadband needs of the Sequim and Eastern Clallam County Community? Could the City of Sequim and the County help spur faster and more wide-ranging development of such services, and what should their level of service be? How might broadband provider help meet these needs? Participation in the meeting will help the Clallam County Community Broadband Team in determining where it should focus its efforts to meet the community needs.
