The Missouri Office of Administration launched MoBroadbandNow in 2009. This five-year initiative seeks to expand broadband accessibility to 95% of Missourians, especially those in rural areas. To complete this task, every region in the state is engaging in an effort to identify broadband needs at the local level.
The task of the planning team, referred to as the Regional Technology Planning Team (RTPT), will be to find out what are the important issues for the region, collect data on the attitudes, needs, and interests of the stakeholders, and then craft a strategic broadband plan for the region.
