At the end of the 2016, the SF-Bay Area Chapter secured funding from the Internet Society’s Beyond the Net program for the “Bridging California’s Rural/Urban Digital Divide with Mobile Broadband” project.
The project ran from January 2017 – January 2018. The Chapter teamed up with California State University (CSU) Geographical Information Center (GIC), Chico, and Valley Vision on this fascinating project, which collected data on mobile broadband performance in Yolo County, near Sacramento, CA. You can read the final project report here.
