Broadband and Smart Cities

Connectivity via a shared high bandwidth infrastructure has become essential for the efficiency of nearly all of today's business, non-profit, government and healthcare initiatives. Broadband development and the success of economic development initiatives are increasingly entwined.

Based at Northern Illinois University, the NIUNet Broadband Solutions team focuses on bringing broadband solutions to businesses, government and other organizations in Illinois and provides access, planning, and implementation of large and small scale broadband connectivity solutions.
