Podcast: COVID-19 spotlights need for rural broadband
Kelsey Kusterer Ziser, Editor, 9/10/2020
CommScope's Morgan Kurk and Dave Wright join the Light Reading podcast to discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic is highlighting the digital divide in a new way and pointing out the need for rural broadband.
With school now in session, delivering broadband to students and teachers in rural areas is even more critical – on top of the need to provide reliable Internet service to employees working from home.
Morgan Kurk, executive VP and CTO; and Dave Wright, director of regulatory affairs and network standards for CommScope, discuss how operators are addressing the challenge of closing the digital divide, and how CBRS and the Universal Service Fund can support programs to address rural connectivity. Kurk and Wright also explain how CommScope is working with service providers to solve these broadband challenges. Tune in to the podcast to hear more.
