FCC Proposal to Regulate the Internet Would Harm Consumers, Stifle Innovation

  Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski’s suggested “third way” of internet oversight tries to find a middle ground where there is none.  Rather than a path between the free market and regulation, this approach opens the door to federal regulation of the internet to address problems that have yet to emerge.

Proposed FCC Regulations May Raise Concerns about Internet Freedom

Today, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski announced that the Commission will issue a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to examine the possibility of new regulations to ensure open access to the internet.  The proposed rules will examine the issue of “net neutrality,” codifying and expanding existing policies on internet regulations.

Assessing Broadband in America

In the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act passed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama earlier this year, a provision was made for a “national broadband deployment strategy” to increase the penetration of high speed internet throughout the country.  To explore their options, the FCC has begun a review of the current broadband policies.  Many have used comparisons between the United States and other nations as a reference for new broadband polices.  Not surprisingly, these advocates suggest that to remain in international competition, a greater degree of government intervention is required; however, upon further analysis, America has one of the strongest bases of independent internet stability worldwide.  The FCC would be wise to avoid aggressive new regulatory policies toward broadband deployment.

Broadband Policies Should Promote Competition, Not Big Government

The Federal Communicatiions Commission (FCC) recently requested comments on a Notice of Inquiry entitled, "A National Broadband Plan for Our Future."  FreedomWorks Foundation filed comments in this proceeding, urging the FCC to avoid regulatory impediments on broadband deployment.  The broadband market is dynamic and fast paced; new FCC regulations could hamper this growth and reduce the vital capital investments required to expand the nation's broadband networks.  Rather than attempting to apply old monopoly based models to today's competitive markets, the FCC should focus on removing barriers to competition, implementing competitive solutions to policy questions, and allowing the private sector to more effectively allocate scarce broadband resouurces to the most highly valued uses.  In addition, efforts to establish "net neutrality" should be avoided, because they threaten the ability to manage dynamic networks effectively.

Help Bring Telecom Competition to Alabama

Legislation has been introduced in Alabama that will allow consumers the benefits of telecommunications reform and increased competition in this vital sector of the economy.  HB 478 and SB 373 take a step in the right direction of getting government out of the way and will help promote investment and encourage innovation in the telecommunications market.TAKE ACTIONTechnology has come a long way since Alabama’s telecommunications laws were last updated.  The current regulatory regime is badly outdated and reduces competition, investment, and innovation in telecommunications services.  As a result, laws written for another time are putting the breaks on exciting new technologies and ultimately consumers are left with fewer choices and less innovative products. Contact your legislators and the governor TODAY and urge them to support HB 478 and SB 373!Remind them that these bills take a de-regulatory approach and will streamline and modernize existing law to encourage economic growth and healthy competition.  They will strip out unnecessary and over-burdensome regulation that will better enable the free market to work in the telecommunications industry.  Especially in such turbulent economic times, Alabama consumers and the economy as a whole should reap the benefits of increased competition in the form of more choices, better service, and competitive prices!
