National state international broadband plans

754 views

Published on

In the last year the State of Minnesota, the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) and the ITU (International Telecommunications Union) have published state, national and international broadband plans. Ann Treacy, primary blogger for Blandin on Broadband, will take a high level look at each plan and talk about what they mean on the local level. Specifically are they ways that local leadership can inform policy at the higher levels and what impact will policy have at the most local level.
