Jon's speech at AnchorNETS: 9th Annual SHLB Conference on October 17, 2019.
Based on what we’ve learned, we’ve formulated three basic principles for community anchor institution broadband policy.
- First, community anchor institutions need access to competitively-priced, High-Performance Broadband, and they deserve the discretion to make informed choices about what best serves their communities.
- Second, broadband is needed to connect community anchor institutions with their users wherever they may be.
- Third, community anchor institutions can serve as launching pads for communitywide broadband access and, in places where broadband has already been deployed, more broadband competition.
