In addition to the policy review, we have developed a set of policy design guides to help you to make informed decisions when developing broadband policy. Each policy design guide covers a specific aspect of programme delivery so should not necessarily be directly compared. They are intended to help you understand how much is known about the policy's cost effectiveness, and what you should consider if you are thinking about using the approach.
The toolkit considers a broader evidence base than the review, including countries outside the OECD where appropriate. Full detail on the approach and how to use the toolkit is available on the resources page. Or click the links below to go directly to the policy design tools below:
Public provision refers to government funding for the construction of broadband internet. Read more about how they work.
Local loop unbundling obliges incumbents to allow local loop access to market entrants and potential price regulation. Read more about how they work.
Provider and consumer incentives provide direct or indirect support to providers or potential customers. Read more about how they work.
