An Economic Perspective on a U.S. National Broadband Plan
AbstractThis paper responds to the U.S. Federal Communications Commission’s request for guidance in designing a national broadband plan. We argue that the U.S. market for Internet services is working well overall, as evidenced by nearly ubiquitous coverage, rapid adoption, large investments, and increasing speeds. Still, the market is not working well for all people in all places, and we offer a framework for considering policies intended to mitigate those issues.
