Electricity, Water, and Internet? One of these is not like the other, but some say it should be. Patrick Lucey sits down with us to discuss the arguments for making broadband internet a public utility (like Chattanooga, TN has done).

Patrick Lucey provides the Open Technology Institute with research and writing support on telecommunications policy issues, with a focus on broadband deployment strategies at the federal, state and local level.

Prior to joining New America, Lucey worked as an analyst for CTC Technology & Energy, an engineering and consulting firm that advises local governments and public sector clients on broadband infrastructure issues. Lucey also has worked on Capitol Hill as a junior staffer for U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
