Data Points Podcast Episode 5 – Broadly Bantering About Broadband

What is a Broadband Coordinator? Does a city need one? Why would a broadband coordinator need a broadband report card? We talk to Jason Hardebeck, Broadband Coordinator for the City of Baltimore about his post and his intentions to make it obsolete.

Hardebeck is working with GovEx (via MetroLab) to develop a broadband report card, which will help determine how available broadband access is and should be in Baltimore. We dive into that effort and find out how it can scale to other cities.

We also talk about Jason’s other efforts around Baltimore, such as his burgeoning makerspace, The Foundery.
