While there has been progress to close the digital divide, it is clear that more needs to be done.

In this episode, I sit down with Doug Brake, Director of Broadband and Spectrum Policy at the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, to discuss what the push for this specific technology means for the average consumer and how the unserved and underserved communities would be affected.
