Broadband Wherefore Art thou?


Just when you get all of your analysis tools sharpened out comes another report that slags Canadian broadband services. Hmmm… Maybe some analysis is in order?

The tome

The Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard dropped it’s 333 page brick on an unsuspecting world about a week ago. It’s taken us until now to plow through the interesting bits. While this study uses some data from prior OECD reports (often disputed and widely criticized data) it attempts to rationalize the effect of using that data. The upshot of the report vis-a-vis Canada is that we have fallen behind and need to catch up.

A number of other comments have arisen out of the study and many pose some interesting perspectives. DSLreports commented earlier today about the effect that adopting US like policy has had on Canada. Some other sources had similar opinions; Globe and Mail, Digital Journal, and GigaOM to name a few.
