Net Regulations Would Reduce Investment and Impede Job Creation

FCC Chairman Genachowski says he still intends to implement Internet regulations, despite all of evidence that there nothing substantial to fix and that regulations would harm consumer welfare.  The evidence all shows that the imposition of Internet regulations would have a chilling effect on network investment and job creation.  This is the conclusion of experts, our research and a recent blog written by Randy May.  The vast majority of consumers also impose regulations and believe that the Internet is working well.  Moreover, Congress has little appetite for these regulatory actions, particularly since every pro-net regulation member lost their reelection bid this November.  If the Chairman wants increased investment and jobs, regulations are not the way to achieve it.
