Obama Team Out to Create Broadband Jobs

Jan 14, 2009  •  Post A Comment

President-elect Barack Obama believes that the speed of internet broadband service needs to be increased nationally, but a broadband stimulus package that will be part of his economic recovery package is more narrowly tailored, a member of the Obama transition team said today.
Blair Levin, a former Federal Communications Commission official,
declined to say how much money will be allotted for work on the nation’s broadband system, but he said the target of any immediate aid is to quickly create jobs by providing broadband to communities either now unserved now or only served at lesser speeds
Mr. Levin, who now is now a managing director and lead telecom analyst for Stifel Nicolaus on leave to participate on the transition team, told the Advisory Committee to the Congressional Internet Caucus that Mr. Obama’s overall goal for a faster broadband nationally is being confused with the far narrower targets of the economic recovery package.
“Don’t confuse a piece of the puzzle with the puzzle,” said Mr. Levin. He said the broadband stimulus package is part of an economic stimulus package aimed at creating jobs swiftly using resources that are quickly available. It doesn’t represent the new administration’s overall plan to speed deployment of higher-speed broadband.
Mr. Levin is a member of the Obama transition team’s Technology, Innovation & Government Reform, which also includes Julius Genachowski, Mr. Obama’s choice to head the Federal Communications Commission.

  4. That’s Shameful that we get Extremist Foreign Political Figures on our soil after years of hate towards our country. America should get rid of the UN and educate these extremists our thoughts of there riduculous ideological background. Qaddafi, Ahmadinejad, Chavez, and many more have far to long been made welcome to our Sacred and Great land. I say Enough will do, Shut down our doors to Hateful Bastards and Say No longer to the U.N. Get out, your NOT nor have never been welcome.

  24. Hi there, thanks for the article! I’ve been reading your blog for two or three days now and i am genuinely taking pleasure in it. I actually had a few questions regarding your post though. Do you think it will be possible for me to get in touch with you further to debate it? Maybe set up a chat on e mail or an instant messanging application? In any other case, cheers anyhow and I am going to continue to read and comment.

  25. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  26. Great blog!! You should start many more. I love all the info provided. I will stay tuned 🙂
