Over the past two decades, the world has seen a revolution in telecommunications that has changed the planet. Few transformations have been more profound and rapid. Yet while our phones, computers, servers and communications tools and habits have completely changed since 1996, our telecommunications regulatory framework is the same.

This discussion will feature two key architects of the 1996 Communications Act, reviewing:

    ● How technology has changed over the past two decades

    ● How current regulations impact broadband investment

    ● How policymakers can best support next-generation networks
