The article focuses on telecommunication issues facing the U.S. President in 2009. The next president and the 2009 Congress will face a logjam of telecommunications issues ranging from network neutrality to broadband coverage that now may only be a sideshow to the economic disaster on center stage. Silicon Valley, which has invested heavily in such issues, is pinning its hopes on Barack Obama in the upcoming elections in large part because he favors a populist telecom agenda. The federal government's appetite for regulation has waned under the Bush administration, which favors a laissez faire, or free market, approach over regulation. But the free market has failed to solve the problem of network neutrality and the U.S. still trails many developed countries in broadband coverage and speed.
