Review of Industrial Organization, 2014, vol. 45, issue 4, 345-378

Abstract: We present a sample of recent FCC matters of economic interest. These include nonstructural remedies in a number of wireless telecommunications transactions, econometric attempts to identify which schools are likely to have access to fiber broadband, and the implementation of “rural broadband experiments” to improve the effectiveness of subsidy programs to promote universal service. We close with some observations regarding the prominence of vertical concerns in FCC policy assessments. Copyright Springer Science+Business Media New York (outside the USA) 2014
