    The list of the 10 leading cities in digital inclusion is at https://broadbandnow.com/report/2019-digital-inclusion-trailblazers/

    It was interesting to see that 5 of them have had digital inclusion fellows.

    Hi, we were glad to see this article and that’s great that they’re are Fellow cities. However, we noticed some errors in the reporting in Seattle. For instance, we wish we had 15 staff working on digital equity! Wondering if others saw issues too? We have contacted them about this.

    I am glad I came across this list to share. I can't believe they put wrong information.

    Only 5 of the 10 cities listed have (or had) fellows.

    I didn't see anything else I know to be wrong, but other Portland people would know the numbers better than I. Surprised they haven't fixed the Seattle error yet!
