--  What will be the chief drivers of demand for higher data rates?
--  What new digital services in the home will be developed and become
    mainstream?
--  How have past data-rate increases been adopted to enable new services,
    and what is the projection for broadband beyond 200Mbps?

  
Industry leaders in the roundtable include:
