Christopher Mitchell appeared on NPR’s Marketplace Tech to discuss the vital importance of Internet access as many Americans transition to remote work and online education. He also discusses the legal restrictions that can prevent communities from implementing solutions to get more people connected.
Here’s an excerpt:
One of the things we definitely need to do is to let communities deal with this in their own ways. There are many states that currently limit the ability of local governments to build their own networks. We really need to see those limits go away so that communities are free to expand internet access as rapidly as they can.
