When the internet launched in the ‘90s, it ushered in an era of revolutionary innovation.
In D.C., policymakers from both parties had the vision to see that America would need a responsible yet competitive regulatory framework which would encourage innovation, private-sector investment and accelerate the deployment of network infrastructure.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) demonstrated leadership by establishing regulations for the internet known as Title I that would empower free market competition to flourish while driving technological advancement in an emerging industry.
As result of that framework, the United States has a broadband network which is the envy of the world. Here in Florida, more than three million households now have a high-speed connection to the internet.
