The Internet Society’s North American Bureau, to which ISOC-NY is affiliated, is lending initial support to a U.S. industry effort to form a Broadband Internet Technical Advisory Group (BITAG) to develop consensus on broadband network management practices or other related technical issues that can affect users’ Internet experience. This is a collaborative industry effort to identify and address operational issues that have been at the heart of some of the recent issues attracting governmental attention. Constructively, this activity could result in organized, forward-looking discussion driven by key stakeholders and also provide opportunities to educate and inform policy makers by shedding light on underlying technical issues from the perspectives of diverse stakeholders.
ISOC-NY will have a planning meeting on Jun 14 2010. We will be welcoming ISOC North American Regional Bureau Manager Sally Shipman Wentworth. Sally is representing the Internet Society in planning for a Broadband Internet Technical Advisory Group (BITAG) so we are sure to have plenty to talk about. We intend to webcast this meeting live so that other North American Chapters can participate.
