Excerpt: "Federal Communication Commissioner Brendan Carr highlighted his work at the agency on promoting telehealth, enhancing more flexible use of radio frequency spectrum and 'making sure that the U.S. is in the lead' in the race for 5G.
Speaking at the annual conference of the School, Health and Libraries Broadband Coalition, #AnchorNets2019, Carr spoke extensively about the 'mustard seed of an idea' around connected health care that has germinated from his visits to rural areas in 33 states and led to the proposal for a three-year, $100 million pilot program of the Universal Service Fund."
