From a news release issued by the NAM, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the Telecommunications Industry Association in conjunction with a “virtual press conference” on policies to promote the effective expansion of broadband access.
Organizations also noted that the policies that create government regulations should not be a part of national broadband plan.
“Broadband helps small businesses expand, create jobs and fuel economic growth,” said Marc-Anthony Signorino, director of technology policy, National Association of Manufacturers. “Manufacturers believe the government’s role in a National Broadband Plan should be to simplify, deregulate and incentivize wherever possible.”
Having been out of the office for a few days, we have no idea what was virtual about the event — “virtual news conference” is apparently the coming thing — but the views expressed were virtuous, man.
