National Cable & Telecommunications Association (USA) Chief Calls Broadband ‘Engine of Our Economy’

If only people in Australia thought this way! We still have no concept of how modern telecommunications, technology and broadband can drive our economy and we still allow the silly games of Telstra and the rest. It is about time Australia got decent broadband and a really big shakeout of the TV as well.

“NEW YORK ( — Speaking at an annual gathering of cable television public relations chiefs, the president-CEO of the National Cable & Telecommunications Association declared that broadband is now ‘the engine of our economy.’ Kyle McSlarrow expressed surprise that so little of the current presidential campaign debate was focused on the regulatory fate of broadband.”
