December 4, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

21 million Americans are not connected to high-speed internet today. With school closures and remote work due to the pandemic, the divide between those with broadband and those without has been more starkly realized than ever before. AT&T CEO John Stankey joins Washington Post Live in conversation with Washington Post columnist David Ignatius to discuss how the telecommunications giant is working to enable the adoption of high-speed internet in communities that need it most. They will also discuss the national security concerns surrounding 5G and how artificial intelligence is impacting the industry. Watch live on Friday, Dec. 4 at 2:00 p.m. ET.
