Study: US Broadband in Middle of Pack
Posted in: Internet Use/New Technologies at 21/10/2009 12:58
The United States is in the middle of the global pack on broadband infrastructure and is forging a very different upgrade path than the rest of the world, according to a new report (PDF) by Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet & Society. The report was commissioned by the Federal Communications Commission, as part of its mandate under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to create a new plan for national broadband access and improvement.
The report is extremely dense, and serves as a graduate-school level overview of the global state of broadband usage; more casual readers may prefer a Harvard interview with the primary author, Yochai Benkler.
