"Project MOON-Light will help address critical infrastructure gaps in Michigan by enabling technologically advanced, middle-mile fiber optic infrastructure across the state. It will help interconnect local Internet service providers (ISPs) to bring affordable, robust, high-speed broadband Internet to homes and businesses in Michigan’s underserved/unserved population areas. MOON-Light will be a major step towards eliminating discrepancies in broadband access across the entire state. The MOON-Light network will provide regional connectivity through an open-access network approach. It will boost innovation in Michigan’s economy and provide new opportunities to participate in education, jobs, health care, and government services. In line with MSU’s goals to build a better world and help all Michigan communities to thrive, the collaboration will allow forging a more equitable path forward." Register for the Innovate Michigan! Summit to hear Dr. Johannes M. Bauer, MSU, Quello Chair for Media and Information Policy and the Director of the Quello Center, speak on Project MOON-Light.
