Comments to the FCC on Competition and Internet Access

Most of us don’t have many choices about how to get internet in our homes. There are usually only one or two options, typically either a phone company or a cable company. Recognizing the need for more competition, the FCC has for decades required phone companies to give access to parts of their telecom networks to competitors who want to offer services to customers. But the FCC is considering rolling back those rules, and it sought public comment on that proposal. CDT filed a comment today with the FCC, encouraging it to put consumers first. CDT asks that the FCC refrain from changing the rules that have brought some competition to this highly concentrated market.
