mergers
In the US, at least, mergers and acquisitions issues in terms of market fairness are already under the purview of the FTC. I really don't think it's necessary for the FCC to have additional oversight beyond an advisory capacity.

laissez-faire
Very difficult order. Mostly I would practice laissez-faire, except where there are market failures, such as in the natural trend toward elimination of competition. Ironically, competitive advantages generated by the act of competition eventually stiffle future competition and future development of new advantages by eliminating competition. So, government could help keep, for instance, barriers to entry low for new competitors, and try to break up the equivalent of today's industry "trusts." Of course, look at the pharmaceutical industry for lessons about barriers to entry.

I selected Return to pre-2018 net neutrality laws, Increase the minimal speed of broadband (in the US it's 25 Mbps/3 Mbps), and Make it more difficult to form mergers and acquisitions. Luckily we only have one more year until the next presidential election. Hopefully the new Congress will see the importance of the FCC and net neutrality.

Skip CES during the shutdown?
Hopefully, the FCC will be back to doing its job soon!

Today’s access network architecture is under mounting pressure due to a continued surge in the number of connected devices, a proliferation of bandwidth-intensive customer applications and dramatic shifts in usage patterns related to the pandemic, such as work-from-home and e-learning.

Learn why now is the right time for cable operators to build greenfield networks or expand their existing networks with 10G PON, arming customers with high-speed symmetrical broadband. Gain a clear understanding of the drivers impacting the access network and the various approaches being considered to deliver higher speed services. Plus, find out the best practices that operators are employing as they leverage the latest in passive optical technology to future-proof their networks.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Node + 0 (Fiber Deep)
  • DOCSIS 3.1, DOCSIS 4.0 (FDX/ESD)
  • FTTP and 10G PON
  • XGS-PON, NG-PON2
  • Provisioning 10G PON within a DOCSIS B/OSS environment
