Community Investment Incentives
Communities want and need high performance, future-proof all-fiber networks. Many are working with the Fiber Broadband Association, state broadband agencies, providers, consultants and other entities to drive investments by potential network operators — be they the local incumbent, a competitive entrant or even the community itself. Communities are creating a compendium of best practices which the Fiber Broadband Association will track and make available.
The Fiber Broadband Association submits these comments in response to the Federal Communications Commission’s Notice
of Proposed Rulemaking which proposes to end the Commission’s “utility-style” regulatory approach for broadband Internet access service it adopted in the 2015 Open Internet Order3 and restore market-based policies.
