WEBCAST TONIGHT: FAST AND FREE : New York’s Vision for Public Wi-Fi Everywhere #NYCWiFi @newamericanyc @oti
Today Monday May 2 2016 New America NYC will present a panel discussion FAST AND FREE : New York’s Vision for Public Wi-Fi Everywhere at Civic Hall in NYC. Noting New York City’s growing dependence on Wi-Fi, in particular through new initiatives such as the LinkNYC franchise to turn phone booths into hotspots, and the NYCEDC’s RISE : NYC resiliency initiative, New America is specifically concerned about possible congestion if LTE-U is broadly implemented by telcos. After a technical introduction by OTI’s Michael Calabrese, Maya Wiley of the NYC Mayor’s Office will deliver a keynote on the policy and planning aspects. The Panel: Dmytro Pokhylko – Vice President, NYC Economic Development Corporation; Colin O’Donnell – Chief Innovation Officer, Intersection; Andrew Afflerbach – CEO and Director of Engineering, CTC Technology & Energy; Chris Szymanski – Director of Product Marketing & Government Affairs, Broadcom; & Greta Byrum, Acting Director, Resilient Communities Program, New America. The event will be webcast live on the Internet Society Livestream Channel.
