Cities Are Teaming Up to Offer Broadband, and the FCC Is Mad

September 27, 2018View for printing

This is a story that defies two strongly held beliefs. The first--embraced fervently by today's FCC--is that the private marketplace is delivering world-class internet access infrastructure at low prices to all Americans, particularly in urban areas. The second is that cities are so busy competing that they are incapable of cooperating with one another, particularly when they have little in common save proximity.

These two beliefs aren't necessarily true.
