Broadband Series: Regulation of Global Broadband Satellite Communications

Broadband Series: Regulation of Global Broadband Satellite Communications
Broadband access and application services, considered as mass high speed services, are relatively new and have yet to reach product maturity. The regulatory understanding of broadband and particularly of the market dynamics associated with broadband is less mature. Regulators and policy makers have tended to view broadband access and services and broadband pricing through the prism of the policy and regulatory frameworks that appeared to serve them well for legacy services of the pre-broadband era. The purpose of these reports is threefold. First, to outline the public policy options for stimulating the deployment of broadband and for maximizing the positive economic impact of this technology. Second, to explore the current economic methodologies and public policy debates focusing on spectrum valuation for broadband wireless services. Finally, to provide broad principles for regulatory action on the definition of pricing strategies for broadband services. The Broadband Series report will include three separated reports focusing on 1) the Impact of broadband on the economy, 2) Exploring the economic valuation and social value of Broadband Spectrum and 3) Pricing strategies for broadband services.
