Broadband Illinois is currently in the process of developing these ten Regional eTeams. The Regional eTeams will be involved in several primary areas, which include convening stakeholders, aggregating demand and identifying supply side solutions. Our objective is to assemble a regional network that will result in an organized system for the ongoing development of broadband access and adoption throughout the State of Illinois.
The Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) requires Broadband Illinois to, “build and facilitate in each county or designated region a local technology planning team.” These eCommunity Leadership Teams, or eTeams, are for the purpose of developing “a technology growth plan that encompasses all relevant sectors of the community.”
The existing overall broadband landscape in Illinois naturally falls into several regions. These are made up of existing regional initiatives and (resulting) significant broadband infrastructure projects. Please click on one of the Regional eTeam links at the left, if you live in one of regions described, for additional information and/or to get involved. Or, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or at 217-886-4029.
