THE DRIVERS OF CHANGE
Competition and Transparency
Over the past couple years, the US government spent $258 Million to map and understand the limitations of our current infrastructure showing that large areas (percentage) of the U.S. only have access to one wireline provider showing there is not adequate competition in many areas.
"Competition is not only the basis of protection to the consumer, but is the incentive to progress."
– President Herbert Hoover, 1930
This means that in underserved areas, corporations have little incentive to deploy faster broadband technology to keep their current customers with no other competitors.
This is one of the key reasons the U.S. broadband infrastructure is falling behind foreign countries such as South Korea, China, Australia and Thailand who's markets are built around transparency and open competition.
As all sectors of the US market subtly shift power from the corporations back to the consumers, our goal is to be apart of this movement.
By empowering consumer with clear picture of what providers are in their area we hope to open the gates for better transparency and competition in the broadband market, ultimately resulting in better outcomes for consumers.
