Digital Infrastructure Investment for the 2020s

A Broadband Breakfast Mini-Conference at the Broadband Communities Summit

Monday, August 10, 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm




This half-day seminar, hosted by Breakfast Media, seeks to bring together the broadband infrastructure and financial communities to fill a crucial gap: the lack of existing conferences that provide all stakeholders in the broadband community with a focus on the digital infrastructure and investment profile of assets, including fiber, small cell and data-center assets, required to support a 21st century information economy.



  • Infrastructure investment fund managers
  • Institutional investors
  • Venture capital, private equity and M&A professionals
  • Senior corporate investment executives
  • C-Level leaders from fiber, mobile, data center and wireless solutions providers
  • Investment analysts
  • Regulators and policy makers
  • Capital and finance professionals
  • Banks and lending institutions



  • To bring innovative thinking about capital investment to the builders of next generation networks, products and services.
  • To bridge the gap between financial and investment communities, technology communities and geographic areas.
  • To explore trends, considerations and risks as well as the business models emerging from public and private projects.
  • To improve the understanding of, and the increased investment in, digital infrastructure throughout the United States: urban, suburban, rural.



  • The role of cities in establishing digital REITs: Who owns them and how is the digital REIT market developed?
  • Digital infrastructure: Who will build it and who will operate it?
  • The experience of infrastructure investment funds
  • Big tech and big telecom discuss digital infrastructure: What does tech want and what can telecom provide?
  • Is the neutral host infrastructure coming to small cells?
