Abstract

In this paper we examine methods of broadband measurement, with particular emphasis on techniques for determining whether broadband availability and adoption are optimal. We identify four methods for assessing whether the existing level of investment is the most advantageous. These include tests for market power, use of market surveys, examination of production functions and prices, and analysis of shadow prices. All of these methods utilize broadband measures that one would find in operators’ service offerings.
