Little Nuggets of Tech and Telecom

Little Nuggets of Tech and Telecom is a new monthly lunch time discussion series led by Jennifer Fritzsche and Carolyn Brandon featuring national, international, and local experts from business, law, policy, and economics. Each month, we will pose a “What If?” question to analyze different scenarios and factors impacting our sector as we try to imagine new solutions to old problems in tech, telecom, and beyond.

Since we know time is precious, we’ll only occupy your screen for 30 minutes as we and our guests challenge the status quo on hot topics like how to close the digital divide, the myths of spectrum sharing, and the emerging use cases for 5G that might drive a new wave of growth and innovation in the U.S.

We will serve you small, digestible bits of good ideas on some of the more interesting headlines driving broadband and tech policy changes in the new Administration.
