City-owned Internet services offer cheaper and some-more pure pricing

Municipal broadband networks generally offer cheaper entry-level prices than private Internet providers, and the city-run networks also make it easier for business to find out the genuine cost of service, a new study from Harvard University researchers found.

Researchers collected advertised prices for entry-level broadband plans—those assembly the sovereign customary of at slightest 25Mbps download and 3Mbps upload speeds—offered by 40 community-owned ISPs and compared them to advertised prices from private competitors.

The report by researchers at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet Society at Harvard doesn’t yield a finish picture of metropolitan vs. private pricing. But that’s mostly since information about private ISPs’ prices is mostly some-more formidable to get than information about metropolitan network pricing, the report says.
