America’s New National Pastime: The Innovative and Competitive Internet Marketplace
The late 20th century saw the rise of broadband networks and the start of real Internet communications. Today, the U.S. is headed towards a future of ultra-fast networks and next generation wireless. These advances have made significant contributions to innovation and the American economy at large. The usage of broadband, from the workday to the latest gadget or application, changes every day and ever year – but regulations and laws do not.
