New York City says broadband should be a universal service

Submitted by acohill on Mon, 06/13/2005 - 11:49

The New York City Committee on Technology in Government has issued an excellent and extensive report [link no longer available] on the need for broadband throughout the city. It reaches many of the same conclusions that the City of Seattle reached in its study of broadband. Among the highlights:

The report also reviews the work of other cities like Philadelphia and Seattle. There are not many recommendations, but they do recommend that every new building have telecom duct as a requirement, not as an option. The report is long but readable, and makes a case that local government has a role to play.
