Despite public, political, and business interest in greater broadband deployment, not every American has high-speed internet access yet (let alone a choice of provider for really fast, high-capacity service). So whoís really to blame for strangling broadband competition?
While popular arguments focus on supposed ďmonopolistsď such as big cable companies, itís government thatís really to blame. Companies can make life harder for their competitors, but strangling the competition takes government.
Broadband policy discussions usually revolve around the U.S. governmentís Federal Communications Commission (FCC), yet itís really our local governments and public utilities that impose the most significant barriers to entry.
