Publisher Description

In April 2007, the OECD released its "broadband statistics". Rather unexpectedly it initiated a hot debate about the "rise and fall" of the US, e.g. the US having slipped to the 15th position. According to the FCC Commissioner Michael J.Copps, the US was indeed falling in a "broadband ditch". Hearings were held at the US Congress to further investigate the issue (1). Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii), who chaired the Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee, stated: "The broadband bottom line is that too many of our international counterparts are passing us by. For this we are paying a price. Some experts estimate that universal broadband adoption would add $500 billion to the U.S. economy and create more than a million new jobs. (2)"
