Siklu host Blair Levin to discuss US broadband policy, PPP and government aid

The COVID Pandemic has caused governments at all levels to understand that Broadband is an essential service, leading to them taking a more active role in ensuring high-bandwidth broadband, gigabits per is available to all.  As part of this movement, there are numerous government funds available as well as opportunities for Public–Private–Partnerships.  Cities, who more than ever rely on broadband to deliver essential services, want to do more to help underserved communities but generally do not have the networks and abilities Service Providers possess.  They do, however, control numerous other assets, such as rights of way, information, and facilities useful to network deployments, as well as managing the construction permitting process.  And they and their affiliated public enterprises are major buyers of communications services.

Siklu is honored to host Blair Levin, Former FCC, Chief of Staff, Architect of the 2010 National Broadband Plan, and Wall Street Telecom Policy Analyst for an interactive webinar about:

  1. Broadband policy
  2. Broadband adoption and role in ‘Information economy’
  3. A high level review of key government funding programs
  4. Review of PPP models
  5. Q&A

We encourage you to send us your questions prior to the webinar: hello@siklu.com
