Image of the Day: U.S. Internet Speeds Skyrocketed After Ending Failed Title II "Net Neutrality" Experiment

CFIF often highlights how the Biden Administration's bizarre decision to resurrect failed Title II "Net Neutrality" internet regulation, which caused private broadband investment to decline for the first time ever outside of a recession during its brief experiment at the end of the Obama Administration, is a terrible idea that will only punish consumers if allowed to take effect.

Here's what happened after that brief experiment was repealed under the Trump Administration and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai - internet speeds skyrocketed despite late-night comedians' and left-wing activists' warnings that the internet was doomed:

CFIF Supports Renomination of Commissioner Brendan Carr to the Federal Communications Commission Print

WASHINGTON, D.C. – This week, President Biden announced his intention to nominate three commissioners to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), including the renomination of Brendan Carr to serve another term on the FCC. 

In response, Center for Individual Freedom (CFIF) President Jeffrey Mazzella released the following statement:

“The Center for Individual Freedom congratulates Commissioner Brendan Carr for his well-deserved renomination to serve on the FCC. Commissioner Carr’s tenure on the FCC has been a model for what Washington needs most: someone who knows how and consistently works hard to implement a light-touch regulatory approach, while working across the aisle in a bipartisan manner. 

“Commissioner Carr has been a crucial leader at the FCC—from protecting America’s networks to closing the digital divide.  He has a proven track record of working with his Democrat colleagues on policies that benefit consumers.

“CFIF strongly believes Commissioner Carr is the right choice to continue the important work of the FCC.”

If reappointed, this would be Commissioner Carr’s second term at the FCC, having been nominated by President Trump for his first term in 2017 and serving as the Commission’s general counsel before that. 

CFIF is a constitutional and free market advocacy organization with over 300,000 supporters and activists nationwide.
