Senator Klobuchar’s Broadband Roundtable

Bill Coleman was one of a handful of people asked to speak at Senator Klobuchar’s Broadband roundtable at the Capital this week. Here are his comments on the experience:

It was fun to be a part of this meeting and hear the perspective of Senator Klobachar and the importance that she places on broadband development.

I tried to emphasize that there are multiple considerations to this discussion – getting broadband of some sort to everyone while making significant efforts to get big broadband to where it is needed right now.

The mapping project was discussed briefly as it related to the state broadband task force. Knowing where 1 Mb broadband is available does not inform a future oriented broadband policy. One map would be easy to draw – that would the map that shows where 50 Mb service is available at prices comparable to our economic competitors in Europe and Asia.
