Will E-Rate, Lifeline Survive the new FCC???
With a new administration in the White House, stuff changes. Question many have is, are the changes FCC Chairman Ajit Pai wants to make going to cause more harm than good?
To help us answer this question, we are here at the Broadband Communities Summit interviewing John Windhausen, Executive Director of School, Hospitals & Libraries Broadband (SHLB). Few organizations know E-Rate and Lifeline like SHBL, and the impact these programs have on millions of people nationwide. Windhausen will talk about the potential changes in FCC policy and how communities can make a stand against the harmful effects that may result.
We also will discuss SHLB work and other programs that help bolster anchor institutions and their use of broadband.
