A week before the release of the FCC’s National Broadband Plan, Blair Levin, Executive Director of the FCC’s Omnibus Broadband initiative, joined hosts Marty Stern of K&L Gates and Jim Baller to discuss the latest thinking on repurposing broadcast spectrum for wireless broadband as part of the National broadband Plan, and how the idea has evolved since it was raised in late 2009, including the recently proposed “Mobile Future Auction.”

The program also included a live discussion with broadband proponent Michael Calabrese of the New America Foundation, David L. Donovan of the Association for Maximum Service Television for the broadcast industry, and industry analyst Jeffrey S. Silva of Medley Global Advisors, who took questions from the live online audience.
