Mobiles and the USO

The “Rethinking the USO” report by Prof. Reg Coutts this week does not go far enough.

Yes, the universal service obligation (USO) needs reform and a universal service fund will be part of that. The changes that have driven the need for reform and why I think Reg Coutts has stopped short of the conclusion that leaps out of his analysis are discussed in Economuse 2015-07-15

The USO is very complicated and more reflections on possible approaches for the future will be published in these columns before the end of the year.
