ICYMI: Our last email announced the topics for each day. To stay updated, be sure to visit our agenda page.
2020 is the year that truly showed us how integral broadband is to our lives. The COVID19 pandemic highlighted strengths, weaknesses, and everything in between. There is renewed interest and re-invigorated debate about the digital divide, broadband deployment, and the role of government. What has been working well for Americans? What can we improve on? How does regulation improve or hurt some of the most pressing tech issues? Join us as we attempt to find answers to these topics and more.
