A lot of wall breaking depends on getting broadband policy right

March 24, 2010 - 0 Comments

Like a lot of other people, everyone here at Break Down the Walls (BDTW) has been watching the unfolding broadband debate very closely. After all, the power of video teleconferencing (VTC) requires a broadband connection. And making sure that all communities and citizens have broadband access is a worthy goal that promises good things for our future productivity and competitiveness as a nation. Here’s a good editorial from the Denver Post laying out the stakes.

We realize the devil is in the details, and we’ll leave the policy wrangling to others. It was encouraging to read how some big players have formed the Broadband Adoption Initiative and are applying for federal stimulus dollars to bring broadband to underserved communities. Fierce Telecom has the story, and a link to the group’s press release.

Your tax dollars hard at work breaking down some walls – you’ve got to love the sound of that!
