Two Perspectives on the National Broadband Plan
 
01:22:59
In the months since the Federal Communications Commission released the National Broadband Plan, the suggested policies and goals have produced considerable support as well as criticism. Through their respective efforts, Craig Settles, a broadband industry analyst, and Blair Levin, chief architect of the National Broadband Plan, have become two prominent voices addressing the Plan, trading columns on GigaOM. In his columns, Settles has argued that the National Broadband Plan calls for a monolithic solution to broadband adoption at the expense of flexibility in supporting different locally-based approaches to maximize economic outcomes, as well as challenged the polices for competition and changes to the Universal Service Fund. Levin, Director of the National Broadband Plan, has defended the Plan arguing that Settles' criticism ignores a number of key recommendations, the problems that Congress ask that the Plan address, and the economics of broadband deployment. On February 7, the New America Foundation's Open Technology Initiative and GigaOM will host Settles and Levin to continue the discussion of the National Broadband Plan and how to move towards implementation. The Wall Street Journal's Amy Schatz and GigaOM's Stacey Higginbotham will moderate the discussion. http://www.newamerica.net/events/2011/Two_Perspectives_Broadband

The National Purposes in the National Broadband Plan: One Year Later
 
01:47:46
It has been almost one year since the Obama Administration presented a strategy for expanding the availability and adoption of broadband Internet access nationwide. In calling on the Administration to create the national broadband plan, Congress insisted that the plan specifically address "national purposes"—job creation and economic growth, consumer welfare, civic participation, public safety and homeland security, health care, energy independence and efficiency, and other issues. ITIF is pleased to reunite the team from the Federal Communications Commission who spearheaded the development of recommendations to integrate broadband into key components of society—and people's daily lives. Please join them for an update on achieving these national purposes during what has been an eventful year for Internet policy action and debate. Robert D.

Plan Aims to Expand Broadband Across US
 
04:03
This is the VOA Special English Economics Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com A newly released proposal calls for almost everyone in the United States to have high-speed Internet service at home within ten years. On March sixteenth the Federal Communications Commission sent its National Broadband Plan to Congress. The F.C.C. wants one hundred million homes to have inexpensive Internet service at ten times current speeds. Another goal for twenty twenty is to have the fastest and most extensive wireless network of any nation. The United States invented the Internet. Yet a recent study placed it sixteenth in broadband access. F.C.C. Chairman Julius Genachowski says the service available is slow and costly compared with other developed countries. Currently, about two-thirds of Americans have broadband at home. But almost one hundred million do not. The government says fourteen million of them cannot get broadband even if they wanted it. The United States built a national highway system to expand transportation. Now President Obama says a similar effort is needed to expand broadband networks. His administration says expanding access is an economic development issue. Fast connections, it says, are important to business and job creation, and to other areas like education and health care. The government proposes to spend up to sixteen billion dollars on a wireless network for public safety agencies. Most Americans get broadband service through their cable television provider or telephone company. There are rules for companies that supply utilities like electricity and water to let competitors use their wires or pipes. But some experts point out the lack of such "open access" rules for telephone and cable companies. This is unlike some other countries with better broadband access. Expanding service to some areas of the country will require wireless transmission. But there is a limited amount of radio frequency spectrum available. To help pay for the plan, the F.C.C. wants to sell five hundred megahertz of spectrum. But it says the plan will require ten times more unused spectrum than it can now offer. TV stations are worried that they will be forced to give up some of their frequencies. Some members of Congress have questioned the costs of the F.C.C. plan and how it may affect competition. At the same time, a court case has raised questions about the agency's legal powers to regulate broadband service. And thats the VOA Special English Economics Report.

The causes are complicated, but non-competitive cable markets, misguided government funding, and infrastructural obstacles have limited expansion up until now. Despite the troubles, some rural Americans are receiving internet via both wireless and wireline systems, but the internet service many receive falls short of the 25mbps up/3mbps down set by the Federal Communications Commission in 2015 during the Obama Administration. Receiving that level of service typically requires a wireline connection provided by fiber optic cable, which many rural residents don't have because the remote territories that would be served are hard to reach and require massive investments that private cable companies like Verizon, AT&T, and Comcast aren't willing to make. If service is available, it is often much more expensive than similar service in urban markets. An idea for solving the problem might be to adopt the funding model similar to the one that helped expand rural electrification during the presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. At that time, the government paid local electric cooperatives willing to do the work to provide electricity in their communities. Unlike electrification, there are many models for broadband deployment, including cooperatives, but also municipal broadband, private companies and other public-private partnerships. If Trump's government plans to spend more money on rural broadband, then following the model of electrification might help correct some of the funding troubles that have plagued broadband expansion up to this point. /// Vox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.

Trump's REAL Infrastructure Plan Gets Leaked
 
06:47
What infrastructure is Trump really planning to improve? Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, the hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. Read more here: https://thinkprogress.org/trump-infrastructure-plan-pipelines-through-national-parks-c2d8a57ff5dd/ “Since the 1920s, companies seeking to build pipelines through national parks have had to obtain approval from Congress — but a single provision in the Trump administration’s proposed infrastructure plan could completely upend that status quo. According to a leaked draft of the infrastructure plan obtained by the Washington Post, the administration is considering proposing changes to the approval process for natural gas pipelines that cross National Park Service owned land. The change would only require approval from the secretary of the interior — a move that environmental and conservation groups derided as a giveaway to the oil and gas industry at the expense of public lands. “There is a reason why these pipelines require Congressional action — we’ve seen pipelines leak over and over again. National parks are where people go and spend their time, and if you have a leak, it could be dangerous to the environment and the people visiting,” Raul Garcia, senior legislative counsel with Earthjustice, told ThinkProgress. “This isn’t substantive and well thought-out. It’s just another political favor for an industry that is well-positioned within the administration.” Beyond spills, however, opponents worry that the construction associated with pipelines — which requires companies to essentially clear-cut swaths of land on either side of the proposed infrastructure — would essentially change the landscape of some of the country’s most cherished natural areas.” Hosts: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola Cast: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

Does Broadband Boost Economic Development?

With the National Broadband Plan due to Congress in just over a month and the next round of broadband stimulus funding fast approachingm, the New America Foundations Open Technology Initiative has invited Jed Kolko, Associate Director and Research Fellow at the Public Policy Institute of California, to discuss an important question: What is the relationship between broadband and economic development?An expert in urban and regional development as well as technology policy, Mr. Kolko will discuss his report: Does Broadband Boost Local Economic Development. The reports analysis relies on the fact that broadband technology has diffused unevenly throughout the United States, thus allowing for a comparison of economic indicators between areas with greater and less growth in broadband availability.The analysis attempts to answers four questions about broadband expansion and economic growth:Does employment grow faster in areas with greater broadband expansion?Does the relationship between broadband and employment differ by industry or across places? For instance, is it stronger for industries that are more reliant on technology or that use workers who are more technically knowledgeable? Is it stronger in places that are more isolated or that have higher amenities?If there is a positive relationship between broadband expansion and employment growth, does broadband expansion cause this growth?If broadband does boost employment growth, who benefits? Is employment growth accompanied by a greater likelihood of employment, higher income, or greater flexibility to be able to work from home?Joanne Hovis, President-Elect of the National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors and an authority on broadband markets, and Benjamin Lennett, a policy analyst with the Open Technology Initiative, will respond to Mr. Kolkos presentation.

Julian Assange to Brief Congress - Jeff Sessions needs to step down.

According to his long-time associate, Randy Credico, Assange wants to speak with Democrat Adam Schiff to “clear this whole thing up.” reports: Credico challenged Schiff to travel to the UK to interview Assange, saying: “He’s got the credibility, Nixon went to China.” He said that Assange would only speak with investigators if they came to the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where the WikiLeaks founder has been in self-imposed exile since 2012. Assange fears that if he leaves the sanctuary of the embassy, he would be extradited to the United States to face a raft of charges relating to the release of a trove of classified US intelligence material by WikiLeaks. “Julian Assange is at the center of all of this, yet no one has interviewed him,” Credico said. However, he went on to say that Assange had not divulged what information he is willing to share with investigators. The Republican-controlled House concluded its Russia investigation earlier this year, in which they found no evidence that the Kremlin had meddled in the US election to the benefit of President Trump. However, a minority of Democrats on the committee have continued with the investigation. Credico claims he passed on the request to Schiff earlier this week. With Schiff’s team responding “Our committee would be willing to interview Julian Assange when he is in United States custody, not before.” Throughout the election campaign, WikiLeaks released thousands of emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee, which various US intelligence services claim were stolen by Russian hackers. Authorities want to see Assange brought to the US and held in custody before interviewing the WikiLeaks founder regarding the leaking of the documents. Assange has been incommunicado since the Ecuadorian embassy cut off his internet connection in March, and this latest intervention from Credo doesn’t appear to have encouraged any ceasefire in the long-running dispute. Jeff Sessions needs to step down or we will never be able to start any of the real investigations. He purposely took the job knowing he would have to recuse himself from the biggest investigations of the year involving the White House. This was a big giant plan from the start. Once Jeff is out of the picture then Trump can assign a new AG and Mueller will no longer be the investigator. "Jeff Sessions is absolutely worthless as attorney general." stated Jason Chaffetz.

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai talks about Rural Broadband
 
03:16
The Farm Bill that is currently working it’s way through the house allocates an addition 1 billion dollars for rural broadband deployment. RFD-TV’s Sarah Mock checks in on the ongoing rural broadband work at USDA and beyond. FCC commissioner Ajit Pai has made closing the digital divide in rural america his top priority over the last year. “According to the FCC’s latest numbers, more than 24 million americans still lack access to fixed, terrestrial broadband at the 25 mbps standard. That’s 8% of the us population. These stats also show that this is largely a rural problem. Only 2% of rural americans can’t get high speed on broadband, but it’s 30%, almost 1 in 3, for rural americans.” Part of his strategy involves new funding programs to get critical funds to the companies who build physical infrastructure to bring internet connectivity to rural communities, including reverse auctions. “By one estimate, reverse auctions can lower the cost of connecting an area by some 20%, and that means that we can stretch these scarce dollars even further and connect even more americans. We’ve done a lot to make sure that the auction is available to everyone regardless of technology or sector of the industry.” Bidding for this auction is planned to start on July 24th, and Pai says this process will make a big dent in the fixed side of the digital divide. But the FCC is also focused on wireless infrastructure, and will invest 4.53 billion dollars over the next decade in 4g lte service in particular underserved rural areas. “We are structuring the mobility fund to serve land area instead of just road miles, that is coverage not only for the concrete of the highways, but for the soils of america’s croplands and ranchlands. And we made this decision in large part because we know that farmers and ranchers need wireless connectivity in order to remain productive and competitive.” USDA is also active in broadband deployment, and the Ag secretary says he’s looking forward to supporting FCC’s and private industry efforts to connect rural america through allocations in the 2018 farm bill as well as with 600 million dollars in funding USDA received in the recent omnibus spending package. “We need a national strategy about broadband connectivity across the country, connecting urban, rural, suburban, with one another to be really effective in transforming this country in the future. So whether or not the money is adequate, it’s a good start, once again, I don’t think it’s expected of the federal government or any government to do everything. We want a business model that’s sustainable and viable for the future with a subscriber base, but often times it takes a government entity to take that risk to get it over the top at the beginning to where the companies can take over.” Pai emphasized his focus on a common complaint for lawmakers – that FCC universal service funds go to subsidize additional competitors in areas where private investment already exists, rather than on truly unserved or underserved areas. pai says focusing on communities that truly have no access is his top priority. Additional funding for rural broadband was expected in an upcoming infrastructure plan, which was proposed by the white house earlier this year, though talks on this plan have stalled in congress in advance of the 2018 midterm elections.

National Broadband Network: Status and Outlook - October 2011
 
21:07
This is a video recording of a speech I delivered to a telecommunications industry audience at the CommsDay (http://www.commsday.com) Melbourne Congress on 11th October 2011. It focuses on three significant 'elephants in the room' that currently impact telecommunications competition in Australia around the building of the Australian National Broadband Network (NBN). These are issues that I believe can be, and should be, addressed to make things better for consumers over the coming decade. Most of the key opportunities for action in respect of these issues lies with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC). A focal point of concern at the time of writing (addressed in the speech) is the ongoing consideration by the ACCC (at the time this video was posted) of a proposed legally binding 'Undertaking' from Telstra that defines how Telstra will 'play nicely' (or...not) in the coming decade, as the NBN is built. This speech was made the week before Telstra shareholders accepted a Telstra board proposal to endorse the Telstra/NBNCo 'NBN deal'. Now that Telstra shareholders have accepted the NBN deal, subject only to ACCC assent, this leaves the ACCC facing an invidious choice in evaluating the Undertaking, as explained in the speech.

American regulators are considering the possibility of launching a free or very low cost wireless broadband service across the US. The Federal Communications Commission is looking into ways to increase the takeup of broadband in America from 65 per cent today to 90 percent by 2020. As part of its National Broadband Plan to be delivered to Congress later this month, the FCC has been looking at ways to expand affordable, high speed broadband throughout the country. One of the proposals considers making spectrum available for a free wireless service. If it's successful the system could be copied by other countries.
