FCC Chair Wheeler On OMB Collection of Data To Evaluate Marketplace Competition

FCC Chair Tom Wheeler issued this statement concerning the Office of Management and Budget plan to collect data in order to evaluate competition in the marketplace.

“Special access service has become increasingly important in the digital economy, enabling businesses large and small to connect to their customers around the globe.  Consistent with the terms of OMB’s approval, we will move forward with data collection and fact-based analysis that will help the Commission better understand competition in this marketplace, and the impact on consumers as we pursue the Commission’s statutory mandate to ensure special access services are provided at reasonable rates and on reasonable terms and conditions.”
