What Worked in Broadband Stimulus, and Why Washington Should Pay Attention (Updated!)Broadband Calendar, Broadband Stimulus, Expert Opinion, National Broadband Plan, Universal Service October 18th, 2010
When Washington thinks about the “broadband stimulus,” what should it remember? The federal government spent nearly $7 billion on new, broadband-related activities, that in many respects were completely unlike traditional federal telecommunications spending on telephone service.
Tomorrow’s Broadband Breakfast Club, from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Tuesday, October 19, at Clyde’s of Gallery Place in Washington, will be one of the first post-stimulus forums to convene the major players and consider these “big-picture” questions. Registration for the event is available at http://broadbandbreakfast.eventbrite.com, and (for those outside of Washington) a free video of the event will be made available here later in the week.
