Topic: Media, telecommunications, and information (Telecommunications)

Keywords: Broadband/Wireless; Telecommunications policy


The report describes how the telecommunications regulatory regime in the United States will need to change as a result of the technological advances and competition among broadband DSL, cable modems and other players such as wireless broadband providers. Proposing major revisions of the Communications Act and FCC regulations, the report suggets an interim transitional scheme toward ultimate deregulation of basic telecommunications, revising the current method for universal service subsidies, and changing the way regulators look at rural communications.
