Earlier this year, we gathered those working hardest to provide faster, more affordable high speed internet access for all San Franciscans. Since then, we’ve been working closely with many of those stakeholders around the city to keep the conversation moving forward.

Please join CivicMakers & Startup Policy Lab us on Thursday, October 8 at Orange Silicon Valley for cocktails, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and an update on public broadband in San Francisco from:

  • PUC Commissioner Catherine Sandoval
  • Orange Chairman and CEO Stéphane Richard
  • San Francisco Supervisor Mark Farrel
  • A panel of civic stakeholders

Participants will also have the opportunity to try multiple gigabit experiences through Orange GigaStudio.
