Foreign Affairs Magazine on Broadband: “Down to the Wire” by Thomas Bleha

April 20, 2005 - 1 Comment

I thought those of you interested in broadband deployment worldwide would be interested in this article that appears in the May/June issue of Foreign Affairs magazine.

The summary of the article states: “Once a leader in Internet innovation, the United States has fallen far behind Japan and other Asian states in deploying broadband and the latest mobile-phone technology. This lag will cost it dearly. By outdoing the United States, Japan and its neighbors are positioning themselves to be the first states to reap the benefits of the broadband era: economic growth, increased productivity, and a better quality of life.”

Couldn’t have said it better myself. : )
