Question

In 2007, some members of Congress introduced a bill that would ensure "net neutrality." The bill would prevent Internet service providers from charging fees to Web sites in order to run at higher speeds. Industry members and consumer interest groups clashed over the bill. Document A. "Left free to create new business opportunities and services, broadband providers (including cable, DSL, satellite and wireless operators) have invested billions of dollars to bring high-speed Internet access to consumers nationwide. With bandwidth usage growing at a rapid pace, continued investment will be needed to keep broadband services robust. If broadband providers are to continue to make these investments, and if consumers are going to be given the levels of services and innovative new products and features they desire, all at prices they can afford, broadband providers need to have continuing flexibility to develop new business models and pricing plans." According to Document A, Internet service providers need the flexibility to charge additional fees so they can A. increase corporate profits. B. expand broadband services.
