    The Divide: Internet Society's Mark Buell on what's 'very good' and 'less good' in the broadband bill

    The Divide: Internet Society's Mark Buell on what's 'very good' and 'less good' in the broadband bill

    With the Biden administration's $65 billion broadband bill now signed into law, this week we hear from Mark Buell, regional vice president for North America at the Internet Society, on the impact the legislation will have on the digital divide in the US. (Note: This conversation was recorded just prior to the bill passing in the House. It was officially signed as part of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act on November 15.) We discuss some of the "very good" things in the broadband bill, as well as the "less good" elements – like a lack of specific funding for municipal and community networks. We also discuss the urgency for the FCC to update its "horrendously inaccurate" national broadband map now that so much funding is at stake.

    Tarazi talks to Light Reading's Mike Dano about how and why Federated is moving forward an automated frequency controller (AFC) technology that could help support broader usage of the 6GHz band. The 6GHz band currently is set aside for licensed users, including carriers and MVNOs, who have deployed thousands of point-to-point microwave links to backhaul network traffic, the CEO explains. With its new technology, Federated is hoping to help advance the deployment of WiFi 6 and 5G in the US.

Easy way to Learn outside my core tech Area

I really have enjoyed this podcast since I found in late in 2020. I listen to the new ones and go back through the history.

I am in tech, but not not in the backbone networking. I find this really interesting, and have learned lot from this. If you have a broad tech background, this is easy to listen to and mostly understand,.
