ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The federal government and the state of California, as well as other states throughout the nation, have made universal access to broadband service a public policy goal, assuming that multiple economic and social benefits will accrue from increasing broadband access. Jed Kolko will discuss whether policies designed to increase broadband availability, especially to unserved and underserved communities, contribute to local economic development. This research was supported with funding from the David A. Coulter Family Foundation.

SPEAKER
Associate Director and Research Fellow Jed Kolko is an expert in urban and regional economic development, as well as housing, and technology policy.
