BACKGROUND -- Congressman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and Congressman Rick Boucher (D-VA) introduced legislation today that would encourage openness, competition, and consumer access to broadband Internet technology. The following response should be attributed to Tom Tauke, senior vice president for Government Relations at Bell Atlantic.
Bell Atlantic supports the bills introduced by Representatives Bob Goodlatte and Rick Boucher today.
As AT&T consolidates its hold on the cable industry, it is important that the Congress review the policies governing the deployment of broadband services.
Consumers benefit from policies that ensure that all consumers have access to higher quality, faster services and more choices in the marketplace.
