Ep 4: What's Next for Municipal Broadband
Sep 19 16
This episode of Bloomberg BNA's Code & Conduit podcast takes a look at a recent federal court decision finding that the Federal Communications Commission overstepped its bounds in overturning state laws that prohibited local communities from expanding city-run broadband networks.
Senior Tech & Telecom Reporter Kyle Daly brings analysis of the court's decision that pushed back on how the FCC interpreted its authority to expand broadband networks nationwide.
Former Bloomberg BNA summer intern Ellie Smith, currently a junior at George Washington University, shares an overview of how two communities -- one in North Carolina, the other in Tennessee -- got to the point that they asked the FCC to step in on their side against state muni broadband bans. She also provides a glimpse into what alternatives states are exploring to get broadband into areas underserved by broadband service providers.
