Here is the witness lineup for the House communications and technology subcommittee’s hearing on promoting broadband infrastructure investment next Wednesday:

Michael Slinger, director, Google’s Fiber Cities
Craig Moffett, industry analyst, MoffettNathanson
Jonathan Adelstein, PCIA-the wireless infrastructure association
Deb Socia, NextCentury Cities, local government focused broadband advocate
Gov. Stephen Roe Lewis, Gila River Indian Community, New Mexico
