The Digital Policy Institute (DPI), an interdisciplinary research organization based at Ball State University, hosted a webinar titled “MUNICIPAL BROADBAND NETWORKS: DO THE RISKS OUTWEIGH THE BENEFITS?” on Wednesday, September 24 at 1:00 PM EST.
The webinar featured distinguished panelists who discussed the ongoing debate – at the FCC in Washington and in cities and towns across the nation – over municipalities operating broadband systems. What’s worked? What hasn’t? What are the economic, legal and policy considerations that surround the debate?
