COMPTEL Comments on House Leaders’ Plan to Revisit Telecommunications Act...


Telecommunications and broadband services have become a vital part of our lives – from how we communicate with each other, to bringing educational, healthcare and other important resources to unserved and underserved markets. However, the underlying innovation and rapid evolution of these types of services would not be possible without competition in the communications marketplace.

The battle to preserve and expand competition and consumer choice is being waged on a number of fronts today – before Congress, at the FCC and in the states. Incumbent carriers are putting the pressure on at all these levels to retain their monopoly power and quash competition that is benefiting consumers.

Without a vibrant competitive market, you will have fewer options for  communications and broadband services, prices will increase and innovation that has the power to improve the lives of individuals will suffer.
