Past Project

Broadband

In 2009, the Berkman Center conducted an independent expert review of existing literature and studies about broadband deployment and usage throughout the world, in order to help inform the FCC’s efforts in developing the National Broadband Plan.

Since submitting its Next Generation Connectivity report to the FCC's National Broadband Plan committee, the Berkman Center has continued its research on broadband policy. The team has focused its efforts on competition in the residential broadband market, including looks into the roles municipalities have played; analysis of the NTIA's National Broadband Map data on provider availability, price and speed availability; and exploration of the value broadband brings.
