Background: Today the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) released its survey showing why Americans are not connected to the Internet. Their release is here.
The following statement is attributed to Gigi B. Sohn, president and co-founder of Public Knowledge:
“It is no surprise to find that high-speed Internet access is too expensive, and that the high price is keeping people from going online. The best cure for high prices is vigorous competition. The FCC should make certain that it includes as part of its National Broadband Plan provisions to create the competition that will bring down prices and produce better services for all Americans.”
