WASHINGTON, July 23, 2012 – The existence of the Federal Communications Commissions Broadband Lifeline Pilot, and the emergence of national public-private organizations focused on computer training could herald the beginning of a new age of broadband adoption and use, said panelists at the Broadband Breakfast Club last week.
BroadbandBreakfast.com released the video of the event, which included participation by experts from Connect2Compete, the Benton Foundation, Comcast, the National Telecommunications Cooperative Association, the Massachusetts Broadband Institute, and a consultant. The event was moderated by Drew Clark, chairman and publisher of BroadbandBreakfast.com, and also executive director of the Partnership for a Connected Illinois.
The FCC’s National Broadband Plan identified three areas that need to be addressed to getting all Americans online: the cost of broadband, basic digital literacy skills and the relevance of content available over broadband transmission. All three were featured in the discussion at Tuesday's event.
The Broadband Breakfast Club is sponsored by Comcast, Google, ICF International, the National Cable and Telecommunications Association, the Telecommunications Industry Association, and US Telecom. Learn more about the regular Broadband Breakfast Club series.
