Competition on the Edge of the Internet [January 30, 2020]   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Document: "Edge providers are individuals and entities that provide content, applications, services, and devices accessed over the internet. An edge provider can be a personal blog created by an individual or a website created by a billion-dollar company. Some edge providers sell products or subscriptions, while others sell consumer data or use it for digital advertising. Edge provider activities, conducted on the 'edge' of the internet--hence the name--are not regulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)."
