The Newseum, 555 Pennsylvania Avenue Northwest, Washington, D.C.
The 6th Annual State of the Mobile Net Conference will feature debates about the most pressing issues facing the exploding mobile net. As application developers frenetically code away, policymakers in Washington, DC and in state capitals are looking more and more closely at the mobile net ecosystem. Indeed, Washington policymakers are eager to help the mobile net achieve its potential by freeing up spectrum, implementing consumer protections and considering privacy rules for the burgeoning app market. With the speed at which the mobile net is evolving, how can Washington policymakers provide the appropriate level of assistance? Our State of the Mobile Net panelists will probe those questions.
