What lessons can be learned by the administration from the 2009 National Recovery Act, the Federal Communications Commission’s successful spectrum incentive auctions, and the increasing private investments into broadband networks by service providers? Where are the synergies between the administration’s goals and the movement toward smart cities and the deployment of 5G wireless technologies? How will the pending infrastructure plan promote a long-term vision for increased build out in rural areas and on tribal lands?

The session will begin with a congressional perspective of the pending White House plan, which will be followed by a panel discussion. After the session, panelists will take audience questions.
