STATEMENT OF NCTA REGARDING CHAIRMAN WHEELER’S SPEECH ON BROADBAND COMPETITION
September 4, 2014
“Chairman Wheeler’s remarks about broadband competition underscore the importance of maintaining a light regulatory touch that encourages more investment from more companies. The surest way to stifle further competition and investment in the broadband marketplace is to impose public utility Title II regulation on Internet access.
“Under the light-touch regulatory regime that has been in place for almost two decades, the cable industry has invested over $210 billion since 1996 to build robust, next generation broadband networks that are available to 93 percent of American consumers. Cable networks capable of 100 Mbps or higher are available to 85 percent of U.S. homes. The cable industry is committed to meeting consumer demand for a world class Internet experience and competing in the marketplace with all wired and wireless Internet providers.
