How Should We Spend $100 Billion on Broadband?

How Should We Spend $100 Billion on Broadband?

The U.S. government is poised to spend upwards of $100 billion on broadband. How should policymakers balance buildout and adoption? What are the best mechanisms for meeting broadband objectives? Is it possible for programs to be designed in ways that facilitate useful evaluations? How will we know if we have solved the digital divide, or is it constantly evolving and not fully solvable? We will discuss these and other questions related to current broadband initiatives.
