Proposed Privacy Rules Will Result In Higher Broadband Fees, CTIA Claims

The wireless industry group CTIA, like other advocates for broadband providers, has made no secret of its opposition to the Federal Communications Commission’s potential privacy rules. The organization now argues that the proposed rules will result in higher prices for consumers. The CTIA’s logic, spelled out in a new 19-page regulatory filing, is as follows: The proposed regulations will make it impossible for ISPs to compete in the online ad market, which will “lock them into a transmission-for-fee business model.” This inability to enter the online ad market will “ultimately result in higher retail broadband prices.”
