ITIF wrote the FCC in support of a recent request from Charter Communications that certain merger conditions related to data caps, usage-based pricing, and interconnection agreements be terminated. ITIF argues that these tools are generally efficient, beneficial tools to recoup the costs of building and maintaining networks. At the same time, ITIF also urged the Commission to consider a separate proceeding to attain light-touch oversight over broadband providers’ usage-based pricing and interconnection practices.
