“With proper testing, rural telecommunications providers can avoid facing technical
issues in their broadband deployments that cost time and money,” said Dave Holly,

“JDSU’s Broadband@Work Across America campaign offers information, training
and solutions to help providers deploy broadband services as quickly as possible.”

broadband services. The first in a series of free Webinars, “Broadband Stimulus

3PM EDT. For more information and to stay updated on the campaign, please visit:
