Making moves all over the map.


Where in the US is Up To Speed? I’m about to show you. Focusing on Verizon’s local impact on communities across the country. Our first stop is in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Soon to boast a 5G network that may even turn the heads of Mount Rushmore. We shared the good news on a Twitter livestream last Friday, with Craig Silliman, U.S. Senator John Thune, and Sioux Falls Mayor Paul TenHaken all on hand for the announcement. What it means for the economy of this area, what it means from jobs, what it means for productivity and quality of life. And so driving hard toward that goal is something that we’ve been working on for some time. And I’m delighted that Sioux Falls and the Mayor of Sioux Falls worked so hard to help make this happen here in the city. According to the Mayor, this is a huge step in making South Dakota a great option for tech companies that may want to stay away from the West Coast rat race in Silicon Valley. Stay tuned to see where our 5G Ultra Wideband Network will pop up next! Some big news coming out of Chicago, Illinois and New Orleans, Louisiana, all to promote stronger digital literacy. We’re celebrating our new partnership with UnidoS, called “Latinos @ Work.” UnidoS is the nation’s largest Latino civil rights advocacy group. Our new partnership will bring digital learning centers to underserved Latino communities in four major cities across the country. The $1 million grant includes the development of a digital literacy and job readiness toolkit that will be implemented in Chicago, New Orleans, in addition to Seattle, Washington and Lawrence, Massachusetts. You can see this program goes coast to coast, north to south. But there’s still plenty of space here for local stories. So if your team has a local story that’s making a difference in your community, share it with us. We’d love to put your team’s story on the map. That’s all for now, until next time, you’re up to speed!
