State of the Net, the largest information and technology policy conference in the US, starts this upcoming Tuesday, January 22nd. The 2-day event is host to hundreds of Congressional staffers and lawmakers discussing key issues surrounding both the Internet and the business, policy, and security of broadband.
NCTA staff will be in attendance including James Assey, NCTA Executive Vice President, who will be sitting on a panel titled, “Big Broadband: What Happens when the Psychology of Abundance Confronts Both the Economics of Deployment and the Rules of Regulators”. This discussion on the business of broadband will provide insight into how our expectations for the utilization of high-speed networks don’t always mirror reality.
Joining James on the panel will be Ramona Carlow, VP of Public Policy and Strategy at AT&T, Blair Levin Communications and Society Fellow at the Aspen Institute Communications and Society Program and Kevin Lo, GM at Google Access. Jessica Zufolo, Deputy Administrator of Rural Utility Services for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, will moderate the panel.
