Robust connectivity to advanced broadband will enable innovative new services for consumers, businesses, and governments, but building out this network will require additional access to rights of way, utility poles, and public structures. Streamlining these processes will be more important than ever, but some local communities may be overwhelmed by permit applications, unsure of the best way to proceed, or continue to think in terms of old franchise-agreement models that are no longer effective. Join ITIF for a conversation with FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn followed by a panel discussion with both industry and municipalities to discuss opportunities and challenges for spurring broadband deployment.
