On November 8, 2011 the Rappaport Center and the Massachusetts Department of Telecommunications and Cable co-hosted a conference on broadband development and access issues. The event featured a keynote address by FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn, two moderated panel discussions, as well as remarks by Governor Deval Patrick.

FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn addressed the FCC’s commitment to accelerate broadband build-out to the 18 million Americans who live in areas with no broadband infrastructure by reforming the Universal Service Fund to aid in bringing the economic, educational, health, and consumer benefits delivered by broadband access to unserved areas. View photos and download the 3-hour recording (MP3, 182MB) to catch up with the event.
