What is the state of broadband competition in the US? Ask 4 experts and you will get about 6 different answers. How does the US stack up against other advanced economies? What can and should be done to improve broadband competition in the US?
Join us for a special discussion with Blair Levin, currently a Brookings Non-Resident Fellow, about policies for intensifying competition in the broadband era. Based on lessons learned as a senior government official in the development and aftermath of the 1996 Telecom Act and the 2010 National Broadband Plan, as well as working with such efforts as Gig.U and Republic Wireless, Levin will outline a framework for what society should want competition to deliver, where competition comes from and the current policy levers most likely to intensify competition.
