Aristotle President & CEO, Elizabeth Bowles, will be a featured presenter at the 2022 Wireless Internet Service Providers of America annual conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.
As a legal expert on cyber security, internet law, and privacy, Bowles takes a deep dive on the pressing topics of advocacy, compliance, partnerships, subsidies and more.
In 2021 Congress expanded federal funding programs for broadband deployment and adoption. Bowles is speaking on these funding opportunities during her Monday sessions.
According to CEO Bowles, “We find ourselves at a unique moment in which a significant amount of funding is available to expand high speed internet to those who currently lack broadband. At the ‘Broadband Billions’ session, I will be speaking on the opportunities and challenges associated with these funds and how to leverage funding to ensure the maximum number of people are covered. “
Bowles is an expert on the challenges to broadband deployment in unserved and underserved areas and offers innovative and balanced ideas for bringing broadband where it is needed most.
