US Communications Policy
Intel public policy: How Intel promotes innovation worldwide
Global communications policies can increase the availability of high-quality Internet and communications services by:
- Promoting widespread, affordable high-quality broadband (Internet) access
- Increasing the amount of radio spectrum available for wireless broadband
Intel sells components used in Wi-Fi, cellular, and other telecommunications equipment and devices. Also, making high-quality broadband more widespread and affordable and improving the cost and quality of data-rich applications will spur server demand, first-time PC purchases, and upgrades to high-end products such as Ultrabooks™. The cost of broadband, especially for most first-time buyers in developing markets, represents more than 60 percent of the cost of a "connected PC".
