    Turmoil and trepidation have plagued the telecommunications sector over the 
    past few years as markets have tanked with a vengeance. Companies and 
    shareholders have lost billions of dollars as a wave of bankruptcies and 
    business failures has rolled through this industry. Corporate leaders and 
    industry pundits have faulted federal and state regulators for doing either 
    too much or too little to prevent this market meltdown. What could 
    policymakers have done to prevent this catastrophe? What public policy 
    should govern this sector in future? In particular, how should new Internet 
    services and broadband technologies be regulated to ensure market 
    stability. Is another Telecommunications Act needed? A panel of industry 
    experts will debate these issues and answer audience questions.
