AT&T helps millions of people and businesses around the globe stay connected through innovations and technological advances that have revolutionized and transformed our digital communications ecosystem. As the marketplace adapts to succeed in this changing landscape, the nation’s legal, policy, and regulatory framework continues to struggle to keep pace. Our mission at The Policy Forum at AT&T is to cultivate dialogue among academia, policymakers, industry leaders, and other interested stakeholders on the complex technological, business, and policy issues that promote the ability of networks of the future to develop their fullest potential.
The Policy Forum at AT&T promotes the exchange of ideas through the publication of its own original research, analysis, and commentary. It also hosts a rich and robust program of panel discussions, debates, roundtables, and presentations, featuring distinguished authors, prominent policymakers, influential thinkers, and other leaders on issues shaping the course of technology innovation.
