More on rural telecommunications

Here is the agenda for Rural TeleCon '03, co-sponsored by the Appalachian Regional Commission and the Rural Broadband Coalition, and here is an announcement for the FCC Rural Wireless Internet Service Provider (WISP) Showcase and Workshop, both events to be held in September in Washington, D.C. I've been wondering about the status of the Dickenson County wireless internet program.

One thing I get from the municipal telecom seminars that I have attended, involving statewide and national groups, is that people know about Bristol and Southwest Virginia, almost in the same way that NASCAR fans know about Bristol.
