Policy Watch: Broadband Access Connecting America - A First 100 Days Priority

Join us to discuss solutions to this critical issue central to economic recovery and opportunity in the post-COVID economy.

March 18, 2021 12:00 PM ET [12:00] (New York)

Millions of Americans—particularly in the least densely populated areas—lack access to reliable, high-quality internet services that could connect them to essential educational, employment, and entrepreneurial opportunities. Large numbers of low-income Americans with physical access to such services cannot afford them at current market prices. In too many areas, a lack of competition among providers contributes to under service. A post-COVID economic recovery that delivers increasing prosperity for American families and preserves our nation's economic leadership must include building towards a vision of a wired nation that meets its citizens' internet needs.  

Join us to discuss solutions to this critical issue central to economic recovery and opportunity in the post-COVID economy. 

As an attendee of this webcast, you will learn how to: 

  • Leverage the dynamism and innovation of the private market to address the time-urgent problem of connecting America 
  • Increase competition in the provision of services
  • Build public-private partnerships to solve the nations' most critical problems.

Who Should Attend: Business Executives interested in keeping America's economy competitive and prepared for the post-COVID-19 challenges, as well as Public Policy experts and practitioners interested in finding bipartisan solutions to the time-urgent problem of broadband access and connecting America to keep it competitive.
