Since 2010, well over half a trillion dollars has been invested directly into wireline and wireless broadband networks. What do we expect investment over the next eight-tenths of a decade to look like? Are we at a steady-state level, or will it change? How much of that investment will be for 5G, other types of wireless connectivity, and wireline? What do we expect new capacity to carry? Will it continue to be video, or will an Internet of Things mean more sensor data traveling from machine to machine? What would the latter imply for connectivity needs? What other types of connectivity scenarios are CFOs, engineers, and content providers planning for?

Participants include:

  • Rob Alderfer, Vice President, Technology Policy, CableLabs
  • Michelle Connolly, Professor of the Practice, Economics Department, Duke University
  • Sarah Oh, Senior Fellow, Technology Policy Institute
