By , IDG News Service |  

Groups saying the U.S. is closer to a broadband wasteland are driven by economic philosophy favoring government involvement in some markets, Bennett added. "The arguments that say the United States is falling behind the rest of the world are just not empirically sound," he said. "There's a philosophical disagreement that's pretending to be a factual dispute."
