Today Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) proposed a data caps bill that encourages transparency for customers so they can further understand their data usage and to ensure that innovation is not jilted by a cap on data. For some time, Public Knowledge has championed the ousiting and further investigation of data caps and supports the stances held by Sen. Wyden.
The following can be attributed to Vice President of Government Affairs Christopher Lewis:
"Data caps can create an artificial scarcity in the broadband market that limits consumer choice and hinders the creation of new competitive content online. Public Knowledge supports Sen. Wyden's effort to provide consumers with transparency on their data usage and to ensure that these caps do not limit innovative products and uses on the Internet. We look forward to a larger dialogue around this topic in the 113th Congress."
