Discussing the FCC’s Gigabit Challenge

Date: 30 Jan 2013 | posted in: MuniNetworks, Podcast | 0 Facebooktwitterredditmail

Last week, I joined Craig Settles on his Gigabit Nation show to discuss Chairman Genachowski’s Gigabit Challenge along with Jim Baller, Masha Zager of Broadband Communities Magazine, Gary Evans of Hiawatha Broadband Communications, and Arkansas Senator Linda Chesterfield.

I take a more moderated stance in this discussion than I have previously, in part because we do need to take advantage of this opportunity and because we cannot expect the FCC to suddenly act in our interests when a Congress dominated by big corporations can so quickly punish them for such actions. I think the discussion is worth a listen, though it is 90 minutes.
