Today, Thursday October 30 October 2014 the Mid-Atlantic chapter of the Federal Communications Bar Association (FCBA) and co-sponsors Harris, Wiltshire & Grannis LLP and Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP will present a lunchtime panel: The Future of the Broadband Marketplace. This session will consider the possibilities and public policy implications as broadband evolves. What does the business case look like for broadband operators going forward? How will the relationships between access and edge providers evolve? How important are the various forms of wireless broadband? Will carrier WiFi systems or TV white spaces change the game? Could states and municipalities serve as laboratories for innovative new models? To go beyond the familiar regulatory debates, the discussion will include business and investment perspectives, in addition to legal questions. Speakers: Kevin Werbach, Associate Professor of Legal Studies and Business Ethics at Wharton School of Business (Moderator); Gigi Sohn, FCC Chairman Wheeler’s Special Counsel for External Affairs; Paul de Sa, VP and Senior Analyst, Sanford C. Bernstein, former Chief of FCC OSP; Dr. Preston Marshall, Principal Wireless Architect, Google Access Services; and Paul Margie, Partner, Harris Wiltshire & Grannis LLP. The event will be webcast live on the Internet Society Livestream Channel.
