In a letter to Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler, USTelecom President Walter McCormick details recent analysis by the association of the latest Internet Protocol (IP) traffic data from Cisco’s annual Visual Networking Index. These findings show that, under a Title I regime, consumer and business usage of the Internet has tripled on a per user basis over the past five years. In addition, the broadband industry invested $75 billion in 2013, up approximately 10 percent from the previous year and surpassing the pre-recession level of $71 billion in 2008. Similarly, under Title I, the ICT sector — including software, computers, digital content, and communications infrastructure — invested over $565 billion in 2013.
