The Future of Connectivity: Where is Broadband Investment Headed?

Technology Policy Institute

01/23/2019 - 12:00 to 14:00

Since 2010, well over half a trillion dollars has been invested directly into wireline and wireless broadband networks. What do we expect investment over the next eight-tenths of a decade to look like? Are we at a steady-state level, or will it change? How much of that investment will be for 5G, other types of wireless connectivity, and wireline? What do we expect new capacity to carry? Will it continue to be video, or will an Internet of Things mean more sensor data traveling from machine to machine? What would the latter imply for connectivity needs? What other types of connectivity scenarios are CFOs, engineers, and content providers planning for?

Participants include:

  • Rob Alderfer, Vice President, Technology Policy, CableLabs
  • Frank Louthan, Managing Director, Raymond James
  • Kathleen Ham, Senior Vice President, Government Affairs, T-Mobile

Additional Speakers TBA
