U.S. Government Working Group on Electronic Commerce, Toward Digital eQuality (Second Annual Report) (Dec. 1999) (full-text).


The report outlined the challenges in e-commerce policy the committee has addressed and chronicled the steps taken to meet these goals. Policy challenges included "the requirements for meaningful consumer protection," "the expanding policy issues associated with greater, faster and more ubiquitous broadband deployment, especially for small businesses and homes," and "the challenge of improving governmental measurement and assessment of the new digital economy."

The Report called for consumer choice in Internet access. The authors stated: "We believe that competition should be encouraged in all markets and support the principle that customers should have choice in both their content and their Internet access provider."
