This conference will exam the FCC's ongoing efforts to reform universal service and will compare that effort to the state of access to broadband (both wired and wireless) internationally. The first panel will examine the FCC's ongoing efforts to address, as FCC Chairman Wheeler put it, that less than 50% of Americans making less than $25,000 have service at home and that nearly 50% of low-income Americans have had to cancel or suspend smartphone service on financial grounds. The second panel will discuss the state of rural and Tribal lands access to broadband technology. The third panel will evaluate the state of broadband access internationally, looking closely at the case of developing nations. Finally, the conference will conclude with a closing dialogue on putting infrastructure in perspective to capture the overall theme of the conference.
