Did the Price of the Internet Drop?
May/June 2007 (vol. 27 no. 3)
pp. 6-7
Shane Greenstein, Kellogg Graduate School of Management
The consumer price index says that the official price index for Internet access in the US went mildly down and up during the five years of dot-com boom and bust. It declined fiver percent over the next three years, between December 2002 and December 2005. Then just recently, it declined more than 18 percent from its base. What does the big drop mean? And how does the rise of broadband access, and the fall of dial-up, figure in?
Index Terms:
economics, consumer price index, Internet access, broadband Internet
