Broadband Forum Colleagues,

The Second Quarter Meeting of 2022 will be held virtually, over five days, Monday, June 13th thru Friday, June 17th, 2022.  As a continued courtesy during these unprecedented times we are waiving the Meeting Fee for the Q2 2022 virtual meeting.

We are looking forward to progressing our valuable work that drives, educates and enables the broadband community and world. As we move into 2022 we expect to see increased dependencies on home and business broadband, which validates that our work is more important than ever! 

Please Watch this page as more details will come!  (Click the Watch button at the top right of this page to receive update notifications.)  If you should have any specific questions or suggestions, please email help@broadband-forum.org.

Virtual meeting sessions will begin at 6am PDT / 9am EDT / 3pm CEST / 9pm CST.  Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience as we are aware that no one time zone will work for everyone.

Thank you to our Q2 Meeting Sponsor!
