USMCOC STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO TITLE II REGULATIONS FROM THE FCC

“The United States-Mexico Chamber of Commerce (USMCOC) is deeply concerned about the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) subjecting the Internet to increased and unnecessary regulations. Reclassifying broadband internet as a Title II common carrier service will likely impair innovation, drive costs higher, and disincentivize economic growth – especially among small businesses.”

“Extending these rules to mobile services is particularly dangerous and will disproportionately affect Hispanics, who lead all ethnicities in smartphone adoption and use of mobile devices to access the Internet. The USMCOC believes that right incentives, not regulations, will ensure investment and innovation are nurtured and preserved.”

“USMCOC urges Congress to write net neutrality laws into place that would not be subjected to endless litigation. A lightly-regulated market has proven to strengthen broadband networks and services that enable entrepreneurs, especially Hispanics, to revolutionize the way our country does business. We must keep this vibrant market unnecessarily slowed down by regulation.”
