Pigeon, MI – miSpot, a Michigan-based broadband Internet provider, was presented with a Broadband Access Hero Award on Thursday, October 24th, during the 2013 Annual Michigan Broadband Conference co-hosted by Connect Michigan and the Library of Michigan in East Lansing.
Connect Michigan presented the Broadband Access Award for Michigan-Based Providers to miSpot in recognition of miSpot’s aggressive network build out to targeted communities that are unserved or underserved in predominately rural areas in Michigan.
The conference was attended by more than 300 participants consisting of community leaders from economic development, state and local government, education, libraries, healthcare, and technology to discuss best practices for expanding broadband and technology access, adoption, and use to revitalize Michigan’s economy.
Ray Leppien, General Manager of miSpot, said “The award is a source of great pride to our company and shows our dedication to ensure Michigan residents have access to affordable, highspeed broadband Internet service no matter where they choose to live. We have a diverse state that includes urban and rural areas and we are working to help close the digital divide.”
