Statement on Chairman Wheeler’s speech, “The Facts and Future of Broadband Competition”

The Internet Association President and CEO Michael Beckerman issues the following statement on Chairman Wheeler’s speech today, “The Facts and Future of Broadband Competition:”

“The Internet Association supports public policy that increases consumer access to broadband Internet and maintains the Internet as a force for innovation and growth in our economy.  We welcome Chairman Wheeler’s analysis of broadband competition in the U.S., and agree that consumers lack choice in high-speed broadband Internet connections. Robust competition and meaningful choice between high-speed providers needs to be a cornerstone of broadband policy for consumers to enjoy all the Internet has to offer.  The Internet must be a place free from censorship, discrimination and anticompetitive behavior.”
