K&L Gates partner Marty Stern joined co-host Jim Baller, together with guests Cecilia Kang, Communications Industry Journalist, the Washington PostGigi Sohn, President, Public Knowledge,  Jeffrey Silva, Senior Policy Director, TMT, Medley Global Advisors, and  Scott Cleland, President, the Precursor Group, for a lively and provocative review of 2010, particularly of the day-old FCC net neutrality decision, and for some bold predictions for 2011.

The National Broadband Plan, the Broadband Stimulus, the Comcast decision, the Google gigabit initiative, White Spaces, Comcast-NBCU, the first steps toward spectrum and Universal Service reform, the changing face of Congress, the FCC’s long-awaited net neutrality decision, and many other significant developments have made 2010 an unforgettable year for broadband in America and have set the stage for another remarkable year in 2011. 

An expert panel, moderated by Broadband US TV co-hosts Marty Stern and Jim Baller, delved into these and other issues, examining developments over the last year, and discussing what we can expect in 2011 in this live, interactive webcast.  As usual, viewers had an opportunity to submit questions to panelists throughout the webcast.
