Verizon says network investments won’t be impacted by FCC’s net neutrality push

As the FCC continues to examine its options for establishing new net neutrality laws, ISPs have insisted that classifying broadband under Title II would stifle innovation. The argument goes like this: since providers can’t be sure they’ll recover money poured into their networks, they simply won’t bother investing at the same pace. AT&T has suggested as much which led the FCC to ask it some questions on the subject and other industry heavyweights like Intel and Qualcomm have also urged the Commission to steer clear of Title II. But Verizon, the courtroom opponent that dismantled the FCC’s previous net neutrality framework, isn’t echoing the “we’ll stop investing” threat.
