    With the new Administration (including a new FCC) and recent legislative developments, the policy focus regarding telecoms industry and high tech generally is undergoing substantial change. These changes are likely to be felt not only in the United States, but also in Europe and elsewhere.  The session will focus on what is currently happening in Washington DC and its likely impact on carriers and consumers.  Among other things, broadband, cyber security, privacy, and wireless issues will be specifically addressed.
