This blog from June 2020 argues for the creation of a broadband competition policy agenda and details how governments can specifically encourage competition. The author recommends five methods: focus federal dollars on higher speeds than 25/3 Mbps, encourage concepts like open-access and municipal experimentation, allow people living in multi-tenant buildings to choose providers, empower community institutions to allow private ISPs to use their buildings to branch out into neighborhoods, and gather pricing data to help consumers make better choices.
