John Doerr asserted the FCC will approve at least one new broadband network in the next year, wresting broadband power from the current duopoly of cable and telephone companies. His prediction was the second of the night at the Churchill Club’s ninth annual Top Ten Tech Trends Debate.

Doerr was not shy about the impact of this imminent approval: It could be the single most important thing we could do for economic development in the next ten years: get more broadband freely available. And if it’s ubiquitous and nearly free, he added, mobile devices “are really going to displace PCs.”
