John Chambers of Cisco on Need for Broadband Policy

John Chambers of Cisco said this in an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle:

Are there specific policy actions you need to see?

A: Well, I think we've made good progress on education, but we've got to realize that it was just that. We've got to continue to raise the bar.

The second is broadband build-out. This is the infrastructure of the future, and we're the only G-8 country that doesn't have a broadband policy. We ought to have it for every American who wants it, with choice, by the end of this decade. Here we are in Silicon Valley, and a lot of my employees have trouble even getting it.
