Net Neutrality Repeal Follow-up

It has been a year and a half since the FCC horrified moonbats by repealing Obama-era net neutrality regulations. We were told that the sky would fall if not held up by the heavy hand of Big Government. Let’s see how it turned out.

[Federal Communications Commission Chairman] Ajit Pai maintains that repealing net neutrality has been “the right thing to do.” …

“Fast forward a year and a half, speeds are up 40 percent, 40 percent year-over-year after we made that decision,” he explained. “More fiber was deployed in 2018 in homes and businesses than any year since they’ve been keeping records. Network investment was up $3 billion year-over-year following declines in 2015 and 2016.”

The most important benefit of the decision is that “more and more people are able to access the internet for the first time,” he said. …

The chairman is referring to the latest FCC report, which claims that in 2018, “fiber was deployed to more new homes in the United States than any year in history, and small cell deployment more than quadrupled.”

Looks like the sky is still up there, sunnier than ever thanks to less intrusive government.
