....We decided to apply this joint approach to informing a data-driven analysis to provide insight into what policies can best be implemented in order to lower the cost of Internet access for users. We found existing datasets to be insufficient because they provided only summary statistics. So, we hired a respected consultancy, Communications Chambers, to produce an international dataset of retail broadband Internet connectivity prices. The result was an international dataset of 3,655 fixed and mobile broadband retail price observations, with fixed broadband pricing data for 93 countries and mobile broadband pricing data for 106 countries. The dataset can be used to make international comparisons and evaluate the efficacy of particular public policies—e.g., direct regulation and oversight of Internet peering and termination charges—on consumer prices.
