Susan Crawford, former science and technology advisor to President Obama and current visiting professor at the Kennedy School and Harvard Law School, recently warned of a “crisis” in American broadband competition, positing the growing dominance of cable operators over broadband access, as well as a "new digital divide" between those who have access to high-capacity broadband networks and those who do not. Ms. Crawford discusses her views on the state and future of broadband competition in an interview with co-hosts Marty Stern of K&L Gates and Jim Baller to be carried on Broadband US TV on February 28th, in a live webcast from 1:00-2:30 pm (ET). Ms. Crawford’s interview will be followed by an expert panel, featuring Larry Krevor, Vice President of Government Relations for Sprint Nextel; Dr. Lev Gonick, CIO of Case Western Reserve University; and Everett M. Ehrlich, President and business economist at ESC Company. The panel will debate Ms. Crawford’s recent articles, the battles among wireline broadband providers, the role of wireless in broadband competition, and the future of broadband competition in America.
