In this episode of the Broadband Bunch, we speak with Brian Mefford, Vice President of Broadband Strategy for VETRO FiberMap. Brian has been at the center of the fight to end the digital divide in America for over 20 years. First as the founder of Connected America and now as part of the executive team at Vetro. As with everything, the COVID-19 pandemic has placed a spotlight on the need for accurate mapping when it comes to offering broadband solutions. Brian, Craig and Trevor take a deep dive and discuss what needs to be done in the coming months for states and communities to ramp up their internet infrastructure, accurately gauge their progress and evaluate their return on investment over time.
