The broadband debate over the past year has focused largely on the fact that the United States has fallen behind other nations in broadband penetration. But the real issue is deciding what kind of proactive broadband policies the United States should implement.

In a new report, published in the current issue of the telecommunications policy journal Commlaw Conspectus, ITIF President Rob Atkinson articulates a national broadband strategy, including policies to ensure that all people and places have high speed broadband.

At the event, Rob Atkinson will present proposals from the new report. Larry Irving, President and CEO of the Irving Information Group, and Blair Levin, Managing Director at Stifel Nicolaus, will respond. Please join ITIF for this widely-attended event.
