“The success of broadband adoption and deployment issues all hinge on whether we have a competitive marketplace,” said Free Press policy director Ben Scott. “If the plan does not address the broadband competition crisis then the FCC will not be in a position to deliver the world-class communications infrastructure Congress has asked for.”

Among other points, Free Press’ report stresses the idea that broadband is now a public utility neccessary for modern life in America and should be treated as such. “No longer is Internet access a luxury service for consumers,” Scott said. “It is a must-have service for the public.”
