Harvard Study Shows Why Big Telecom Is Terrified of Community-Run Broadband - Motherboard

'As we’ve noted previously, community owned and operated broadband networks are a fantastic alternative to the broken status quo. '

'According to the new study by the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University, community-owned broadband networks provide consumers with significantly lower rates than their private-sector counterparts. '

'A new study out of Harvard once again makes it clear why incumbent ISPs like Comcast, Verizon and AT&T are so terrified by the idea of communities building their own broadband networks. '

'The study examined data collected from 40 municipal broadband providers and private throughout 2015 and 2016. '

'In fact, a 2009 FCC-sponsored Harvard study found that open access networks routinely result in lower prices and better service. '
