Who doesn’t have a horror story from dealing with a cable company? Why are most areas of NC limited to only one internet service provider (ISP)? We have one of the top technological areas in the United States (RTP), why do we have such poor choice when it comes to our internet?
If elected, I will introduce legislation to allow more open competition in the broadband sector. Municipalities should be able to operate ISPs. By allowing them the option to create this infrastructure, it will open the market. More choice equals better service and lower prices. We know this works because we used to allow it. At one time, Salisbury, NC had the fastest internet in the United States. Let’s remove the restriction on ISPs and get competition back into our internet market.
