Going off the grid in the push to broadband

Monday, February 09, 2009

They’re calling it the modern day equivalent of the electrical grid, or the interstate highway system. Seven billion dollars of the stimulus plan making its way through Congress right now is devoted to bringing broadband internet to under-served parts of the country. But technology experts worry that the multi-billion dollar tech plan will suffer if we don’t have more time to look at exactly what technology we’re getting. One of these experts is The Takeaway's technology contributor Siva Vaidhyanathan, a professor at the University of Virginia, who joins us now to talk about these concerns.
