You’re Invited | CASE Panel Discussion

Join us on Thursday, April 4th for an informative and interesting luncheon discussion on the interaction of franchise fees and broadband deployment.

A panel of experts will discuss the FCC’s efforts to reaffirm the federal framework for broadband infrastructure. Topics to be covered include the impact this will have on consumers and on broadband deployment, the harm of excessive franchise fees, and the historical context of the Commission’s current look at these issues.
