Open to the public, the workshop is intended to gather data and information for the development of a National Broadband Plan, including a set of research recommendations that Congress could consider to enable the U.S. to be a global leader in broadband networking in the years 2020 and beyond and to further broadband deployment in the US over the next decade.
