Wednesday, March 17, 2021, 12 Noon ET — “Redefining Broadband’s Speed Limit”

  • When “broadband” was first defined by the Federal Communications Commission in 1996, it measured at least 200 kilobits per second (Kbps) in either direction. In 2010, the agency revised the definition to be at least 4 megabits per second (Mbps) download and 1 Mbps upload. Five years later, the agency upped the standard to 25 Mbps down and 3 Mbps up. That definition is already showing its age. Further, other states and federal agencies have other definitions. Is it time for a new broadband speed limit?

  • Jonathan Chambers, Partner, Conexon LLC
  • Tyler Cooper, Editor-in-chief, Broadband Now
  • Christina Mason, Vice President of Government Affairs, Wireless Internet Service Providers Association
  • Drew Clark (moderator), Editor and Publisher, Broadband Breakfast

Wednesday, December 1, 2021, 12 Noon ET — How the Telecom and Tech Industries Should Approach Privacy

Slowly but surely, privacy is rising in the landscape of telecom and technology policy issues. From the perspective of the technology marketplace, massive data breaches, incessant cybersecurity threats including ransomware, and the market power of the big tech companies (Alphabet’s Google, Apple, Meta’s Facebook, Amazon and Microsoft) force everyone else to adapt defensively. But from the policy perspective, the reality of congressional or Federal Trade Commission action is forcing a new respect on the notion that privacy rules may soon be enshrined into law. This Broadband Breakfast Live Online session will consider how tech and telecom industry players should approach the issue.
