The Divide: Render's Sam Pratt on using digital tools to close the digital divide
In this episode, we hear from Sam Pratt, CEO of Render Networks, a provider of geospatial network construction technology. Founded in Australia, Render is primarily focused on building networks in the US and is currently active across 12 states. We discuss Render's recent announcement that its network construction technology has helped connect over 1 million premises to fiber – and what that milestone says about the industry's evolution on using digital tools in the field. We also get into funding initiatives and how the US federal effort to close the digital divide differs from Australia's.
