For decades, America has had a problematic relationship with telecoms. Today, broadband across the US is owned by a few large corporations.
Outside of large cities, access is often patchy, competition is stifled, and consumers have little choice in the operator they use. Millions of broadband customers still only have one choice of provider in their area.
Modern consumers need high-speed reliable broadband for everything from working from home, to e-health and vital services, so it’s vital that broadband networks are fit for purpose.
Shortly, SiFi Networks will launch Broadband: The Second American Revolution, a book we’ve written that explores three key themes: the role of open access fiber in creating smart cities of the future; how it will tackle America’s digital divide; and how it will give consumers more choice.
The book includes interviews with a variety of people, including: the head of Iceland’s biggest fiber network, a US representative and a state senator, the Greenlining Institute, a capital fund manager, a mayor of a FiberCity® and many more people, to bring you an insightful look at how broadband in the US is changing.
