On Wednesday, January 30 2013 the Georgetown Center for Business and Public Policy hosted a discussion Regulation and the IP Transition: Laying a Predicate for Growth at the National Press Club in Washington DC. Speakers included Blair Levin, and AT&T Policy SVP James Viccone. Video is below. No captions/transcript.
Description: Broadband technologies power the country’s digital infrastructure and have become essential platforms for 21st century communications and commerce. One of the most important economic and policy issues facing the new administration is whether U.S. regulation of broadband platforms will help or hinder the kind of innovation, investment, competition and economic growth the country needs for economic prosperity. This event will explore whether moving from a network of switches to an all IP environment is necessary, and how regulators might create the right incentives for private investment.
