Turmoil in Telecomm: Will Washington and the States Move Forward on Reform?

Perhaps no other industry has been as deeply affected by the ups and downs in the economy and the stock market as the telecommunications industry. Scores of firms have gone bankrupt and hundreds of thousands of jobs have disappeared.

Meanwhile, there is fierce debate in Washington and the states that will likely affect both industry and consumers. Among the contentious issues: competition in local telephone markets, accelerating the delivery of broadband services, and bailing out the telecommunications industry.

The Brookings Institution assembled a panel of experts with divergent views who have written extensively on telecommunications.
