Yochai on the need for Net access competition

Yochai Benkler’s op-ed in the NY Times takes the Broadband Strategy Initiative to task for not requiring more competition among access providers. Well put.

I believe that Harold Feld would agree with Yochai, but he nevertheless has a somewhat sunnier spin on the report, perhaps because, as Harold explained elsewhere, he earlier on gave up on getting the plan that he actually wanted.

  1. Governments can profit from companies profitting.

    Getting the competition to push down the price can in turn impact (reduce) what the government can get out of the companies.

    It’s like the government levying a ‘tax’ on the consumer through the proxy of a telecommunications company that’s been shielded from competition.
