Congress has insisted that a national broadband plan specifically address “national purposes” – job creation and economic growth, consumer welfare, civic participation, public safety and homeland security, health care, energy independence and efficiency, and other issues.

ITIF is pleased to host the team from the Federal Communications Commission spearheading the development of recommendations to integrate broadband into key components of society – and people’s daily lives. They will discuss changes in health care reimbursement systems, the creation of a nationwide broadband wireless public safety network, and other recommendations. The National Purposes recommendations promise to set an ambitious agenda for policy change across government and into the private and not-profit sectors.

Join us for a discussion of these innovative ideas for the broadband’s future in daily life.
