For those who missed last Friday’s NCTA Connects, here’s a full video of the event.
The discussion, titled The Evolving Internet: Patterns in Usage and Pricing, was a deep dive into how consumer broadband usage is changing and how Internet Service Providers must evolve with the needs of their customers.
Through the lens of an economist, Professor Steven Wildman debunks some of the myths surrounding Usage Based Pricing and how a more flexible pricing model promotes the spread of broadband access.
Also joining Professor Wildman was Professor Daniel M. Lyons of Boston College Law School – who recently published “The Impact of Data Caps and Other Forms of Usage-Based Pricing for Broadband Access” – and Sandvine President and CEO Dave Caputo who highlighted the findings of his company’s recent Internet research.
The event surrounded the release of Professor Wildman’s paper, titled “The Economics of Usage-Based Pricing in Local Broadband Markets”.
