While the debate over the merits of municipal broadband is nothing new, what has been missing from the debate over the years is a cohesive legal and economic analysis to frame the discussion. A new 100-page study recently published in the Federal Communications Law Journal attempts to fill that gap. To explore this important topic in detail, we will be joined in this teleforum by two of the authors of this new study to discuss their findings.
Note: The full paper, The Law and Economics of Municipal Broadband, 73 Federal Communications Law Journal 1 (2020) may be downloaded here.
