Facilities-based competition is often used in the telecommunications industry to describe competition between providers of the same or similar services, but where the service is delivered by different or proprietary means or networks. For example a BPL provider competing with a cable TV network to provide broadband Internet service is considered to be facilities-based competition. Also called infrastructure-based competition.
