What kind of future are we building with the tools we have today? Justine Underhill’s examination of that question now leads her to high-speed internet access. As she explores the opportunities it could unlock, from education to health care, she uncovers a web of politics and regulatory capture that may be preventing faster service in the U.S. Along the way, she speaks with Ted Rappaport, the founder of NYU Wireless and the Brooklyn 5G Summit, Susan Crawford, author of Fiber, and former FCC chairman Tom Wheeler. She also visits Chattanooga, Tennessee to find out why the city has some of the fastest internet speeds in the country. Filmed in New York and Chattanooga in April, 2019.
