The rise of the internet and mobile telecommunications networks have spurred innovation in content and devices, which has transformed video programming, content delivery, and the way we communicate. Senator McCain has worked tirelessly for consumers to increase the availability of communications services to all American households.
Senator McCain believes a free and open internet works and that it is not the responsibility of any government to regulate it and has, therefore, been a leading opponent of the Federal Communication Commission’s (FCC) implementation of so-called “network neutrality” rules, which gives the FCC new regulatory authority over the internet. He also supports keeping the internet access free from all federal taxes. The absence of such taxes will help keep consumers’ internet rates low and encourage private sector investment.
