Over the last quarter-century — from the days of slow dial-up connections and brick phones to today’s world of fiber-based broadband, apps and 4G wireless networks — consumers have derived incredible benefits from high-speed data networks. Join Steve Pociask, president of the American Consumer Institute, and a panel of experts as we look at how the evolution of the broadband ecosystem has created opportunities and choices for today’s consumers. We’ll discuss: today’s current technology trends and the investment that preceded them — how broadband, mobile devices and applications are proliferating and driving the economy; and the future — what we expect for consumers in the decade ahead and what regulatory oversight is best suited to maximize consumer welfare.
