Schools See 'Incredible Progress' on Internet Connectivity, Report Says - Education Week
The number of U.S. K-12 public school students who now have access to 100 kilobits-per-student, per-second internet access in their classrooms, thus meeting the FCC’s minimum connectivity target. That’s up from 39.2 million students last year. How far has schools’ internet access come, and how far do they have left to go? “I’d say the majority of the work has been done, but the hardest work remains,” Marwell said.
He also wants to see the K-12 sector embrace the more-ambitious target of 1 megabit-per-second, per-student connectivity, which the FCC and others have said will be necessary to keep digital learning advancing into the future.

Consumers can ‘pay’ for better broadband with higher prices or reduced choice - analysys mason Oct 2018
"Consumers can ‘pay’ for better broadband with higher prices or reduced choice"

“Investment, regulation and competition investigations are shifting to focus on full-fibre broadband networks, but consumer revenue is what is needed to pay for fibre”

"Consumer revenue is the essential part of the business case for FTTP/B networks ... the full-fibre take-up in Western European countries with a relatively high spend on broadband services has increased significantly"

"(De)regulation and relaxation of competition/merger rules may support higher prices and reduce the intensity of price competition, but can this revenue be used to benefit fibre network investment?"
