During 2004-2005, several states passed legislation to restrict municipalities from offering retail broadband data networks to the public. In June 2004, the Supreme Court upheld exemptions for cable providers, letting them restrict access by competing ISPs to their networks. This presentation reviews the implications for colleges and universities of recent legislative and regulatory developments shaping broadband services and explores strategies for institutions of higher education.
