Montana's Net Neutrality Rule is Still Bad

FreedomWorks Hails the Passage of the Restoring Internet Freedom Order

Today the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted to enact the Restoring Internet Freedom Order, reversing regulation of Internet service providers (ISPs) under Title II of the Communications Act of 1934 and returning to a Title I framework that existed for all but the past two years of Internet history. In 2015, FCC inappropriately caved to pressure from President Obama and progressive activists and installed heavy-handed utility-style regulation under Title II to preserve so-called “net neutrality.” This occurred despite any evidence of a systemic market failure and in spite of warnings from many, including FreedomWorks, that such forms of regulation have historically stifled investment, innovation, and competition in other sectors, including telecommunications. FreedomWorks is delighted by the news that this FCC, under the leadership of Republican Chairman Ajit Pai, has voted to return to a more reasonable and proven regulatory framework for ISPs.

Myth: Repealing Title II Will Unleash Broadband Monopolies

Net neutrality activists claim that repealing Title II regulatory expansion will place your internet access in the hands of monopolistic telecom giants. Allegedly, uncompetitive internet service providers (ISPs) will raise rates, provide miserable service, and arbitrarily choose which websites you access. These concerns stem from alleged reports that ISPs face little competition for broadband services, citing that 48% of Americans living in an area with only one broadband provider of FCC standard high speed internet.

Internet Got Faster Without Net Neutrality

Net Neutrality proponents argue that internet service providers (ISPs) will slow your internet speed and charge you extra fees if the FCC abandons its Title II regulatory expansion. Wrong. This goes against every ounce of recorded history, which shows that speeds increase and prices decline, and have done so without Title II.

Net Neutrality Has Nothing to Do With Censorship

Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai put the Obama-era “net neutrality” rules on the chopping block in a 2-1 vote on May 18th to move forward with a proposed rulemaking to overturn the 2015 Open Internet Order. One mythical claim by activists who favor net neutrality is that repeal of the Open Internet Order legalizes website censorship and hurts free speech. Following this narrative, internet service providers (ISPs) could arbitrarily block their broadband customers from accessing any websites they please. An especially feared target of censorship is online services provided by competitor companies.
