FCC Releases 2022 Communications Marketplace Report


The FCC has released the 2022 Communications Marketplace Report, which assesses the state of competition across the communications marketplace and the state of deployment of communications capabilities.  The report evaluates competition to deliver voice, video, audio, and data services among various providers.  The report also assesses whether laws, regulations, regulatory practices, or marketplace practices pose a barrier to competitive market entry. 

In the report, the Commission notes that numerous issues and opportunities in the communications marketplace have emerged during the COVID-19 pandemic, including: (1) the potential for more competitive broadband markets; (2) changes in the wireless sector in the 5G area shaped by multibillion dollar acquisitions; and (3) the expansion of LEO satellite constellations and the introduction of new stakeholders in the commercial satellite industry.
