ACI Study: FCC Regulations Reducing Consumer Choice

Internet Public Policy Issues - The American Consumer Institute

A new ACI study, Concentration by Regulation, finds that the FCC’s new 1930s public utility-style regulations are reducing broadband investment, innovation and choice, while increasing market concentration. The Telecommunications Act of 1996 was to provide a “deregulatory framework” for increasing competition and to “accelerate rapidly private sector deployment of advanced telecommunications and information technologies and services to all Americans.” The FCC’s recent imposition of regulations are not meeting these goals.  To download the study or for more information click here.
