    FreedomWorks Foundation Urges FCC to Adopt Market-Based Broadband Policies

    06/09/2009

    FreedomWorks Foundation recently filed comments on the Federal Communications Commission's Notice of Inquiry, "A National Broadband Plan for Our Future."  Our comments focus on the importance of avoiding excessive regulation and promoting a dynamic and competitive marketplace that encourages broadband deployment.  The study concludes:

    "To date, the internet has evolved relatively free from federal regulation.  This flexibility has created an important resource that continues to evolve to meet a growing demand among consumers and businesses, and a rational broadband policy framework that promotes competition and innovation will facilitate this process.  Moreover, that demand and the data-intensive content of the broadband world have generated new products that may require new tools for network management.  It is not in the public’s interest to give the government the job of controlling this evolution.  The future of broadband should be determined by those using the network, as should decisions on handling the burgeoning flow of information over the internet."
