Phoebe Yang is a Senior Advisor to the Chairman on Broadband at the FCC, where she leads a team that manages the Commission's broadband priorities. William Bates is the Vice President of Government Affairs at the Council on Competitiveness. The forum will be covering on two major areas during the two days: U.S. competitiveness and the future of telecommunications. It’s worth attending if you’ll be in the D.C. area.
