Statement by the US Hispanic Chamber of Commerce on Broadband Innovation

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - April 29, 2016) - The USHCC commends Comcast's announcement of increased data thresholds in trial markets. American consumers only stand to benefit when free markets and innovative companies come together to generate new services, options, choices, and ideas. 

The move to a full terabyte of data per month eliminates data worries for all but the most intense data users -- a terabyte allows consumers to stream 700 hours of HD video, play 12,000 hours of games, and download 60,000 high-res photos every month.

The market has spoken and Comcast has listened. This move is a win for consumers who will receive a significant increase in data at no extra charge. Hispanic entrepreneurs will also benefit as they witness the market working without need for overarching or preemptive regulation that would otherwise stifle innovation.
