Abstract

During the next decade, computers and televisions will give way to "telecomputers" that will not only receive but also store, manipulate, create, and transmit digital video programming. These technologies will transform business. But this vision is being held back by the telecommunications infrastructure, which is not keeping up with the power of computers. The solution is a system of fiber-optic cables reaching every home and business in the country. Business must push for a new regulatory climate that will allow these new technologies to proliferate.
