Who and Why

Forum Ambassadors

This page introduces some more of the members of the BBF community who represent the work around the world via the Ambassador Program:

The Ambassadors Program

Ambassadors drawn primarily from Forum Officers, Directors, ex-Officio Board Members, and selected member representatives agree to

  • Promote the work of the Broadband Forum and the Broadband industry
  • Raise awareness and educate relevant groups regarding the Broadband Forum
  • Share the value of membership to potential new members and encourge them to join the BBF community

Ambassadors represent the forum at conferences, trade shows, meetings of other industry bodies and with regulatory, research, government and other higher level bodies.

Ambassadors are approved by the Forum CEO. To request an Ambassador, please click here.
Members will find details on the Ambassadors' page on the members' wiki
