Public/private partnerships for broadband buildout
AbstractPublic-private partnerships for the development of broadband infrastructure have been proposed as a method of increasing buildout, while addressing such issues as the digital divide and network externalities. This paper begins with a summary of the history of public/private interplay in the telecommunications industry. The defining parameters of a public/private partnership are then identified and discussed. These parameters include ownership vs. control, the role of government regulators, foreign participation, laws and legal precedents, the maturity of the existing network, and risk perception. The paper concludes with recommendations on the formation of public/private partnerships for broadband buildout.
