[b]FCC and PUC Commissioners to take Broadband Road Trip through South Dakota[/b]

Posted by Nicole
Pierre, SD - The Broadband Road Trip will cross South Dakota August 24-25 with four commissioners: Federal Communications Commissioner Jonathan Adelstein and South Dakotas three Public Utilities Commissioners: Bob Sahr, Gary Hanson and Dustin Johnson. The Tour will make a scheduled stop at Kennebec Telephone Company, Kennebec on Wednesday, August 24th at 7 PM. South Dakota has some terrific examples of entrepreneurs applying the most recent telecommunications technology to their businesses in order to compete in the global economy, said FCC Commissioner Adelstein, a Rapid City native. Congress placed a high priority on rural concerns in the Telecommunications Act. We need to ensure that quality service at affordable rates is available to everyone in this country whether they live in rural or urban areas.

The purpose of the trip is to highlight the importance of high-speed Internet to rural America and bring that perspective to the ongoing federal telecommunications policy debate, Commissioner Bob Sahr, who is leading the event, stated. FCC Commissioner Adelstein is a great advocate for our state, and we want to give him first-hand examples of cutting-edge applications and what it means to South Dakota consumers. Some major issues facing the FCC include Intercarrier Compensation Reform, Universal Service changes, and Voice-Over-Internet Protocol.The event will spotlight various businesses as well as individuals in South Dakota that are applying the latest telecommunications technology to enhance their business.

Stops include Sioux Falls, Mitchell, Groton, Kennebec, Pierre, Cheyenne River Indian Reservation, Philip and Deadwood. The businesses visited will vary from a family-owned telephone company, a tribal owned telephone company, a livestock sales barn doing Internet sales, and historic Deadwood whose businesses are promoting tourism via the Web - capitalizing on the cable TV show with the same name, Commissioner Dustin Johnson added
