Briefing on Broadband and the Stimulus
Wednesday, April 15, 2009
The Internet Innovation Alliance held a briefing for non-profit groups to discuss aspects of the broadband stimulus plan and ways to ensure the stimulus funds are spent in the most effective manner. It was a dialogue between the participants and the speakers, IIA Co-Chairmen Larry Irving and Bruce Mehlman. IIA has been calling for a National Broadband Strategy, and now one is actually on the way. This Administration has a distinct focus on broadband and using it to benefit the American people, and the stimulus is a part of the larger plan to increase broadband access and adoption.
