Definition Edit

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has defined an intermodal competitor as a provider of services similar to those provided by incumbent local exchange carriers that rely exclusively on technological platforms other than wireline technologies.

Intermodal competitors include, for example, cable modem service providers, wireless broadband Internet access service providers, satellite broadband Internet access service providers, and other broadband Internet access service providers such as broadband over power line providers.[1]
