FCC to hold workshop, webinar on broadband and Homeland Security
The Federal Communications Communication will hold a workshop meeting and webinar on the use broadband to enhance homeland security, on Aug. 25, 2009. The link describing the Washington DC meeting, webinar signup, and agenda is here. The first panel will stress the economics of broadband as a response infrastructure tool, and the second will discuss the use of broadband in handling specific infrastructure vulnerabilities.
The website lists a number of other workshops, all of which tend to argue the idea that broadband should be available in all areas as a critical instrastrucural utility.
