The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act which included $7.2 billion in broadband stimulus funding to provide broadband Internet coverage to rural areas and network solutions to aid the development of smart grid technology opened up a golden opportunity for satellite companies.
Facing tough competition from WiMax and cable competitors, satellite executives went to work – pitching their solutions to politicians and various agencies especially those assigned the task of distributing the funds in three windows. On Aug. 14, the first of these three windows closed.
As industry executives head back to their camps to craft new strategies for the next window, the competition is sizing up proposals and creating counter-offers. Via Satellite’s Broadband Stimulus webinar will bring executives to the table to share their experiences and provide insight on the process.
Join our webinar and sit in on the conversation between the first veterans of the stimulus battle to discover:
- What new strategies are being developed for the second and third windows?
- Which government officials have the most influence in the final determination?
- Why did the major U.S. WiMax players back off in the first window? Is it a strategic move? Or are there legal conflicts of interest?
- Who will be the big winners of the broadband stimulus fight? Will the satellite industry see a reasonable share of the pot?
- And More
