Modernizing America’s Infrastructure through the IP Transition

The United States telecommunications networks are currently undergoing a 21st century transition. There are contrasting views on the modernization and upgrade of the communications infrastructure to all internet protocol networks, including the positive impact of Gigabit networks on enhanced service delivery to consumers. Leading experts differ on the appropriate role of private investment, regulatory intervention, and antitrust considerations associated with the internet protocol transition and the deployment of Gigabit networks.

Please join the Center for American Progress for a discussion with these experts to discuss the digital transition and the impact for all consumers and industry.
