House lawmakers ask telecom giants over broadband price increase during epidemic


From Don’t Pass – Go, Don’t Collect – $ 200 Deep

Council members say the national health and economic crisis is exacerbating the need for telecom giants to raise more money.

The subject of their anger is broadband use caps, which we have long considered It has been made very clear Inflation is lower than that of customers in competitive American broadband markets. Such restrictions do not manage congestion, are not technically necessary, and do not provide any financial services other than price increases, the rate broadband is already very lucrative, and “heavy” users may already be exposed to business class levels.

Broadband hats are a monopoly on captive customers. And while Trump’s FCC is temporarily hit pinky oath agreement With ISPs to block them in the first few months of the disaster (many Ignored), As ISPs Comcast And AT&T Not only are they quick to respond to criminal charges, some ISPs like Comcast are actively involved Expand them. Of course, millions of Americans are struggling to pay for essential services and rent, but the monopoly will always be monopolized unless they see one of the two: the U.S. broadband sector does not have both competitive penalties or enforcement sanctions.

Supervisors who regularly look to the US telecom monopoly have found it difficult to do so through COVID, although that often does not have any serious consequences. This week’s members of the House Energy and Trade Committee are Frank Palon, Jerry, Mike Doyle and Jerry McNernner.

“Internet service has become more important as more Americans have been forced to move to distant work and online school over the past decade. Broadband networks seem to have largely undergone these dramatic changes. This is an unprecedented step at a time when families and small businesses across the country are looking for faster and safer broadcasts than ever before.

This is all very important Decent The way monopolies claim to be robbing customers during a crisis. Legislators in question have dismissed letters from many telecom executives equally, asking for more details on the timing of many capital decisions.

This is empty talk until the next administration comes and Congress cosmetics are out of GP control. For four years, the Trump administration was literally It has no capacity Even acknowledging that American broadband is unrivaled will result in the lowest performance of all the necessary international standards and some high prices for broadband in the developed world. They also turned a blind eye to the use of telecom monopoly Extra charges for the universe This is a way to increase the cost of post-selling broadband and television services.

Lawmakers are still happy to see this, but as government vehicles focus on providing COVID assistance to vulnerable Americans, broadband monopolies are constantly striving to pay customers who cannot vote with them. Their wallets are finding themselves in great demand. That’s why Comcast has recently expanded its broadband hats right now When he knew that no one in the government would give.
