GAO provided a publication presenting the panel discussions of nationally acknowledged experts who attended a GAO-sponsored conference on communications technology.

GAO noted that the panel discussions addressed such policy issues as: (1) how the communications infrastructure should develop to promote innovation and maximize the benefits of competition; (2) the role of communications policy in promoting economic growth in the United States and competition abroad; (3) how the United States should allocate the electromagnetic spectrum to effectively support the growth of communications services as a major element of the U.S. communications infrastructure; and (4) whether the U.S. regulatory structure is effective at promoting technological growth and innovation and providing benefits to users.
