Webinar – Broadband in America: Investment, Innovation, Competition, Economic Growth & Consumer Benefits

October 26, 2012 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm UTC+0

Moderator: Barry Umansky, J.D.

What is the state of broadband in America?  What are the big picture issues and what are the ongoing battles?   Do existing laws and regulations help or hurt the growth of broadband and the dynamic shift to wireless Internet-based communications?  What changes are needed in federal and state government policymaking to catch up with the realities of 21st century competition and technology?

Our expert panel will address issues ranging from assessing and measuring broadband availability and competition in the marketplace to the kinds of regulatory and legislative actions that will affect broadband in the near and far terms.   Who are the industry players and what’s the state of competition and ownership shifts?   What are the spectrum needs for expanded wireless broadband, and how can these needs be satisfied?   How has broadband increased jobs and driven economic growth; and what changes in law and policy are needed to further these broadband-driven benefits to the country?
