Broadband: Should We Regulate High-Speed Internet Access?
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThere is widespread concern in the telecommunications industry that public policy may be impeding the continued development of the Internet into a high-speed communications network. Broadband policy is controversial in large part because of the differences in the regulatory regimes faced by different types of carriers. This asymmetric regulation is the focus of this volume.
