What do the gaps in your TV channels, the "homework gap", Educational Broadband Service (EBS), and 5G all have in common? All are current hot topics in the field of broadband spectrum, which has been buzzing with activity over the last few years. It’s all very exciting, but can be difficult to follow for those new to the spectrum policy sphere.

“Key Concepts in Spectrum Policy” offers the need-to-know background on the different licensing regimes, the key proceedings at the FCC, the relationship between spectrum and 5G, and why it all matters for community anchor institutions.

Sean McLaughlin, executive director of Access Humboldt, will moderate the discussion with Open Technology Institute's Michael Calabrese, Voqal's Mark Colwell, and T-Mobile's Christopher Wieczorek
