Connectivity has permeated business and personal life. In the future, how will the markets for wired and wireless broadband evolve? What will consumers value more—ever faster speeds or ubiquitous connectivity? How will the types of content that flow over the internet shape broadband infrastructure? When will 5G be more than hype and what will its effects be? These questions and more will be discussed by participants in the panel, “The Future of Connectivity,” at this year’s TPI Aspen Forum. The event is scheduled this year for August 21-23.
Panelists for the discussion are:
Donna Epps, Vice President for Public Policy and Strategic Alliances, Verizon
William Lehr, Research Associate, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Jennifer Manner, Senior Vice President for Regulatory Affairs, Echostar and Chair of Satellite Industry Association

David Quinalty, Policy Director, Subcommittee on Communications, Technology, Innovation, and the Internet, U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation
