Witnesses set for Senate communications hearing


Not just any communications – rural communications. That’s what the Senate Subcommittee on Communications, Technology and the Internet will be discussing on Tuesday 4/9/13. Broadcasters do not have a seat at the table.

The session likely will focus on telephone and broadband issues. All of the companies that will be represented on the witness panel provide one, the other or both.

The session will kick off at 10:30 AM local time.
