Nanotechnology and the Future of the Telecommunications Industry

Jack Uldrich: Yesterday, the IEEE’s Committee on Communications and Infrastructure Policy released a white paper claiming that the development of “Gigabit Networks” should be a national priority. “Failure to act,” the report continued, will “relegate the U.S. telecommunications infrastructure to an inferior competitive position.”

I wholeheartedly agree with this conclusion (along with the committee’s calls for regulatory flexibility) and believe this warning should be heeded not just by national lawmakers but by the nanotechnology community as well. This is for three separate and distinct reasons.
