"The tone of the TechNet White Paper, with its emphasis on marketplace rather than regulatory solutions for managing growth, is particularly welcome. Clearly, broadband services will play an increasingly significant role in our lives and in fueling our economy. However, we have some serious concerns about the paper’s call for 100 megabit broadband transmission speeds and ‘last mile’ infrastructure development, which we believe misread current and future market conditions. We’d urge policy makers to carefully scrutinize these points."
