From BroadbandCensus.com Weekly Report
WASHINGTON, May 11, 2009 – Over the course of about three months, the dialogue about high-speed internet connectivity went from the general to the specific. Now one strand of debate is heading into generalities, even abstractions.
This is going on even as the Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration meets with key players. The most recent entities to make ex parte presentations at the NTIA include broadband officials from Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New York, Vermont, and the cities of Chicago and New York. They highlighted the importance of states and cities in broadband mapping and in deploying broadband infrastructure.
Others with recent meetings at the NTIA include the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Marshall County (Indiana), a coalition of broadband diversity supporters, and three organizations proposing methodologies for selecting grant applicants: the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research, Empiris, and David N. Townsend and Associates.
