My interview with Kyle McSlarrow, head of the National Cable and Telecommunications Association, aired tonight on C-SPAN. Here's a clip of his reaction to Google's broadband experiment and his thoughts on what it means for the cable industry.
"They're not planning on turning themselves into an internet provider. It's an experiment," he said.
"We make available today... much more than a gigabit of capacity of data. we're using it for high speed Internet, a lot of video, phone and other interactive services....but over time... as demand calls for it, we can start switching more and more capacity to the Internet side," he said. "We're already rolling out the fastest national broadband plan in America. That's not an announcement. That's real world, today."
