Abstract:

This issue paper presents a set of candidate broadband research topics prepared by the RAND science and Technology Policy Institute STPI to assist the Presidents Council of Advisors on science and Technology PCAST Panel on 21st Century Infrastructure. The PCAST Panel is examining broadband Internet infrastructure with the goal of developing policy advice on speeding broadband deployment by addressing demand-related issues. As part of this process, OSTP staff has requested that STPI develop and briefly describe examples of research whose results would inform broadband Internet policy choices. They exemplify research that might best be done at a national level, independent of particular stakeholders in the policy debate They are representative of projects that could be undertaken by creating and privately funding an independent, nonprofit organization focusing on broadband research.
