We don’t even need ISP regulation
But there’s another, more basic reason, to join the majority of the House (including 171 Republicans) in opposing the runaway FCC: People are happy with their ISPs, both landline and wireless. The FCC itself says so:
Fully 91 percent of broadband users say they are “very” or “somewhat” satisfied with the speed they get at home. The comparable number for mobile broadband, which is not yet technologically capable of the same speeds as home broadband, is 71 percent satisfaction. As a point of comparison, 92 percent of cell phone users are very or somewhat satisfied with their cell phone service overall.
We don’t need new regulations, and especially not Net Neutrality regulations, when over 9 out of 10 people are happy with their high speed landline Internet access. Period.
