Executive Summary

This report is the second of two reports prepared for the John Adams Innovation Institute ("JAII") of the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative ("MTC")5 in order to assess and evaluate approaches for measuring the status of broadband Internet access ("BB") services in Massachusetts. The first report provided an assessment of the current status and best practices experiences of efforts to collect, share, and analyze data on broadband Internet access services for mass market consumers in the United States and abroad (see Broadband Metrics Best Practices Report6). The earlier report identified the challenges confronting policy-makers seeking to frame and target effective broadband policies by the lack of adequate data on the current status and growth trajectory for broadband access services.
