Broadband for All in the 2020s

Schools Health & Libraries Broadband Coalition

10/17/2019 - 14:00 to 15:00

With a new decade, new technologies, and nationwide elections looming, 2019 is the year to re-think our nation's communications policies and revitalize core values around broadband deployment and adoption. These subject-matter experts will debate whether we are on the right track or whether we need a paradigm-shift in broadband policy to bring broadband to unserved and underserved communities. The conversation will touch on the importance of state and local leadership, broadband’s economic impact on communities, and the need to ensure competitive and equitable broadband opportunities for all Americans. In particular, the panelists will explore the role of anchor institutions in providing high-quality broadband access, training, and applications to enable economic and civic benefits.

Speakers:

  • Benton Senior Fellow Jonathan Sallet
  • Former FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn
  • American Library Association Public Policy Deputy Director Larra Clark
  • Merit Network President and CEO Joe Sawasky
  • California K-12 High-Speed Network CEO Luis Wong
