FCC's Eugene Huang on a National Broadband Policy

Presented by the Center for Future Civic Media and the MIT Communications Forum


The digital revolution that brought us Facebook, Twitter and YouTube could help revive participatory democracy in the U.S., says Eugene J. Huang. He unveils the FCC’s plan for providing broadband access to every American, and describes how its recommendations could spur more open government and greater civic engagement.

"We believe broadband has the potential to transform civic engagement. This transformation will take a commitment from government, elected leaders, and the public at large, to renew democracy in a broadband-enabled 21st century."
