New Whitepaper advocates better broadband policies

The Communications Workers of America have issued a a new forty page whitepaper, Speed Matters: Affordable High Speed Internet for All [PDF, 330kb]

In it they note that Americans pay far more for much slower speeds than most other developed countries. The Japanese, for example, “have 8.5 times the speed at 1/12 of the cost.”

A summary of the paper is on the SpeedMatters blog: New Report: Speeding Up Our Internet and Our Economy (January 22, 2007)
