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.
Should the Federal Commission decide to adopt so-called “net neutrality” rules, it is essential that broadband Internet service providers be permitted to engage in reasonable network management practices so that they can maintain the highest level of service quality, according to a brief filed with the Commission by the Fiber-to-the-Home Council.
