NYC invites advice on how expand broadband access in the city

Tuesday 14 November 2017 | 12:14 CET | News
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has invited ISPs and other interested parties to advise the city on how it should expand broadband internet access and reach its goal of having citywide access by 2025, the Wall Street Journal reported, adding that this type of request usually comes before the issue of a more formal one. The request is meant to "maximize the benefits of competition," according to a draft reviewed by the daily. Market watchers say the invite could challenge the market dominance of Charter Communications.
