The Divide: Mayor of Chattanooga on gigabit broadband, quantum networks and digital equity

Welcome to the 100th episode of The Divide! This episode features Tim Kelly, Mayor of Chattanooga, Tennessee.

We discuss Chattanooga's broadband evolution over the years, how gigabit-speed broadband has transformed the local economy – particularly in the wake of the pandemic and remote work. Hear about where Chattanooga still faces problems in getting residents connected, and how the city hopes to leverage federal funding to address digital equity issues.

We are also joined by Dr. Duncan Earl, president and CTO of Qubitekk, to discuss a recently announced partnership with Chattanooga's EPB to launch a quantum network in the city and what that means for Chattanooga's digital future.
