In today’s filing, ACI wrote: 

The Commission has indicated its intent to focus on facts and reasoned analyses to determine whether imposing new Internet regulations would produce more benefits for society than costs.  We continue to find no factual or analytical support that identifies specific market failures that warrant ex ante regulations, and we have seen no evidence that any of the proposed remedies would produce a net increase in consumer welfare, the criterion set out by Congress in seeking the development of a nationwide broadband plan.  We urge the Commission to conduct a welfare analysis before imposing any market remedies in the form of new Internet regulations.  We also encourage the Commission to monitor industry conduct and performance, and to postpone the imposition of ex ante-based Internet regulations.”
