Wednesday, January 6, 2021, 12 Noon ET — “Broadband and the Biden Administration

  • What changes will the administration of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris bring for the country’s use of broadband technologies? How will the technology and communications industries be affected? Will public policy on controversial tech policy issues, including Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, be markedly different from today? What does the quest for “universal broadband” mean? Tune in to hear what non-profit advocacy groups believe is likely to happen, come January 20, 2021.
  • From BuildBackBetter.com, the Biden-Harris transition team web site, we read:
    • Mobilize American ingenuity to build a modern infrastructure and an equitable, clean energy future. We’ve seen the need for a more resilient economy for the long-term, and that means investing in a modern, sustainable infrastructure and sustainable engines of growth — from roads and bridges, to energy grids and schools, to universal broadband. Biden has a plan to meet the climate crisis, build a clean energy economy, address environmental injustice, and create millions of good-paying union jobs.
