New policy brief on broadband competition in LA county

A new policy brief has been published as part of the Connected Communities and Inclusive Growth (CCIG) project, along with an interactive mapping tool. The findings indicate that broadband competition remains weak throughout LA County. While the share of residents able to choose between two or more competitors increased in 2016, about half still lacked choice in broadband service. Further, these gains in competition mostly benefited higher-income areas, and largely bypassed Latino residents. Lastly, investments in fiber have stalled, and the availability of next-generation services remained skewed towards wealthier areas.
