Today Friday October 30 2015 the Greater Washington DC Chapter of the Internet Society (ISOC-DC) will present, as part of its Internet Policy Forum series, Are You Happy With Your Internet? A Discussion about Broadband Competition with Blair Levin. Levin, currently a Brookings Non-Resident Fellow, will talk about policies for intensifying competition in the broadband era. Based on lessons learned as a senior government official in the development and aftermath of the 1996 Telecom Act and the 2010 National Broadband Plan, as well as working with such efforts as Gig.U and Republic Wireless, Levin will outline a framework for what society should want competition to deliver, where competition comes from and the current policy levers most likely to intensify competition. Respondents will be James Baller, President, Baller Herbst Stokes & Lide PC, and Hal Singer, Principal at Economists Incorporated, and a senior fellow at the Progressive Policy Institute. The event will be webcast live on both Livestream and Youtube.
