FTC Hearing on Broadband
From Competition Policy International:
Tom Struble with R Street Institute explained that there is plenty that the FTC can do under current authority. They can convince state and local governments to lower the barriers to entry as a way to promote competition. The FTC can also look at market definition using the modern antitrust lens of the SSNIP test—namely, whether a content provider can profitably institute a small but significant non-transitory increase in price. Mr. Struble also suggested that the FTC should provide clarity to industry participants as to whether in-home broadband and wireless services are indeed separate markets.
