Seattle CTO testifies on national broadband policy

Seattle CTO Bill Schrier was one of four municipal tech managers who submitted remarks to this morning’s FCC hearing that’s intended to start the conversation about a national broadband policy.

The hearing is intended to start the conversation about a national broadband policy. Schrier talked up Seattle’s fiber-optic broadband plans and suggested the FCC put a priority on similar super-high-bandwidth services.

That gets to one of the key tasks the FCC is facing, which is to clarify the definition of broadband. It’s currently 768 kilobits per second, this Washington Post story notes, which isn’t enough to deliver online video without pauses and buffering.

Here are Schrier’s prepared comments and background on his blog.
