WASHINGTON, January 20, 2011 - After 15 years of explosive growth and innovation in telecommunications since the last major revision, the 112th Congress is faced with the question of whether the law is keeping up with technology. On Tuesday, our panelists discussed whether Congress should consider another overhaul of the Telecommunications Act of 1996, and whether it is politically viable to do so at 2011's first Broadband Breakfast Club.
The event is available on BroadbandBreakfast.com at the following link.
- Walter McCormick, President & CEO, USTelecom
- Shirley Bloomfield, CEO, National Telecommunications Cooperative Association (NTCA)
- Jerry James, CEO, COMPTEL
- Tom McMahon, Director, Communications and Government Relations, QWEST
