SUPPORTING AN OPEN INTERNET

Internet Service Providers (ISPs) offer millions of American consumers a powerful, open experience so they can enjoy the web content, services and applications of their choosing. The broadband industry--which has invested more than $250 billion since the 1990’s to build broadband networks--has embraced and fostered the development of an open Internet. Consumers demand it and it makes good business sense to provide customers full value for their Internet connections. As a result of the U.S. bipartisan policy of lightly regulating the Internet, we have some of the most advanced networks in the world with connections capable of 300 Mbps and faster available to 85 percent of U.S. homes. Today, wired or wireless broadband reaches 99 percent of Americans, among whom include founders and creators of our nation’s top web companies and exciting startups. A continued light regulatory touch is critical in order to keep America’s broadband momentum and innovative ideas in the technology space moving forward.
