Welcome to the Information Sector. This policy area deals most with telecommunications — broadband networks that move information across the planet at the speed of light. These networks are becoming as important to communities as access to roads and electricity as education, health care, and businesses increasingly need faster speeds.
Below, you will find the most recent news items, audio stories, and commentaries from New Rules that relate to information and telecommunications policy. We also have model rules – organized in the right sidebar on key topic areas and covering different levels of government from local to international. Most of our daily coverage of community broadband occures at MuniNetworks.org.
