Challenging the Monopoly: The New Broadband

When it comes to broadband access, consumers have little to zero choice in providers. The options are few and often come bundled with video or landline phone packages. It's a monopolist's (or duopolist's) paradise. However, new technologies are helping shift the broadband landscape, bringing much needed competition and innovation to the market. Join former Aereo CEO Chet Kanojia, for a compelling discussion of the new technologies on the horizon that will change how we access the internet. These groundbreaking technologies are not about "disrupting," rather it's about declaring war on mediocrity.
