The US vs the US

Discourse.net Apologies, blog readers, but this announcement is for UM Law 1L & 2L students only: I would like to hire a part-time summer research assistant. The hours are negotiable, but likely would be in the 15 hours per week range. Discourse.net
This blog was made in cooperation with Michael James Horney, George Mason University master’s student, based upon our upcoming paper on broadband innovation, investment and competition. Ezra Klein’s interview with Susan Crawford paints a glowing picture of publicly provided broadband, particularly fiber to the home (FTTH), but the interview missed a number of important points. The international broadband comparisons provided were selective and unstandardized. The US is much bigger and more expensive to cover than many small, highly populated countries. South Korea is the size of Minnesota but has 9 times the population. Essentially the same amount of network can be deployed and used by 9 times as many people.
