IS-2004-44: Big Broadband: Public Infrastructure or Private Monopolies
Wayne Caswell recently returned from an Economic Summit in Loudoun, VA, where he was invited because of a paper he wrote earlier this year: “Reviving the FORGOTTEN Information Superhighway." The summit expanded his thinking about the role of government in telecommunications policy and led to an invitation to speak at Austin InnoTech, a regional conference and exhibition with focus on the mutual relationship between technologies and nnovation. This newer paper summarizes and expands on that presentation, which was called “Fiber, Wireless and Bandwidth for TeleWork."
