Video from a recent NAF Event: Fair Play? Competition in the Broadband Marketplace

A recent event at the New America Foundation, featuring former FCC Commissioner Michael Copps - examining the broadband market, addressing the question of how we get to a broadband service that serves as a vital input for innovation, competition, and economic growth. Do we eliminate the Public Switched Telephone Network? Do we foster municipal broadband networks? Was the Telecommunications Act of 1996 a success? Do we need a return to UNI-P?

Panelists included:
  • Hank Hulquist, Vice President for Federal Regulatory Affairs, AT&T
  • The Hon. Chip Pickering, Spokesman, The Broadband Coalition and Former U.S. Representative (R-Miss.)
  • Gene Kimmelman, Senior Associate, Global Partners and Former Chief Counsel for Competition Policy, U.S. Department of Justice
  • Todd Thibodeaux, President and CEO, CompTIA
  • Lawrence J. Spiwak, President, Phoenix Center for Advanced Legal and Economic Public Policy Studies
  • Joseph Gillan, Consulting Economist and CEO, Gillan Associates
