The Live Online previews will include discussions of last-mile digital infrastructure, infrastructure investment funds, federal funds and opportunities and neutral host infrastructure. The panelists previewed these future discussions today, talking about the last-mile benefits of open access internet, the challenges to broadband models for investors and service providers, and the roll of the coronavirus pandemic.
Panelists stressed the need to develop an understanding of how to make universal internet access work financially. In order to get to the core of this issue, the web series and conference will bring together infrastructure investment fund managers and other capital holders with fiber, mobile, and data solutions providers to instigate what business model will best support future-proof internet infrastructure.
