ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA – The American Consumer Institute, a non-profit 501c3 education and research organization, has submitted comprehensive comments in response to the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Public Notice on the proposed implementation of Title II network neutrality regulations.
Expressing apprehension about the potential ramifications, the American Consumer Institute underscores the need for a thorough analysis of the proposed regulations’ impact on investment, deployment, and access within the broadband marketplace. The Institute contends that stricter net neutrality regulations could result in significantly higher broadband prices, lacking substantial evidence to justify such measures.
After an exhaustive review of market structure, conduct, and industry performance, including competition, investment, industry profits, and prices, the Institute finds no market failures warranting additional government actions. Consequently, the American Consumer Institute urges the FCC to conduct a rigorous supporting analysis, provide reasonable estimates of costs and benefits, and pause the proceeding until public comments on this vital matter are thoroughly considered.
