Why Broadband Competition Is As Good As It Gets, Explains Telecom Analyst

Broadband competition in the US is as good as it gets in the foreseeable future and will potentially decrease according to telecom and tech regulatory analyst, Blair Levin. "There's not that much left to be disruptive," Levin said. "White spaces could be in rural areas, and a little bit in broadband, but I don't think so. Other things that people are looking to be disruptive I don't think will happen."

According to a report by Telephony, "Levin, who is rumored to be a potential candidate for an FCC [Federal Communications Commission] appointment should Barack Obama win the presidency, also made some predictions about the telecom agenda of a Democratic administration. Ubiquitous, affordable broadband will be a priority for an Obama administration, Levin said, and Obama's FCC would likely be charged to move very quickly on that agenda."
