Description

On the second episode of Smart City Diaries, join Anna and Deborah as we take a deep dive into the history of broadband, from 14.4k to gigabit speeds. Once a luxurious curiosity, the internet has become a necessity in our day to day lives, and has connected the world in unprecedented ways. But in the states, our connection is still determined by a few powerful corporations, who have little motivation to push for equitable access. In post-covid life, can we really depend on our broadband connections to live, work and play? And is it time for broadband to join our other utilities as a fundamental right for every citizen?


Along the way, we are also talking about sharks, the colonial pipeline shutdown, and another Google screw up. Fun times!
