FCC targets Big Tech with new regulatory fees

“This is the FCC trying to tax our internet coming and going,” said Carl Szabo, vice president and general counsel at NetChoice, an advocacy group that represents tech companies, including Facebook and Google, that oppose government fees and regulations of online platforms.

“Americans already pay the FCC’s taxes to get on the internet, and now the FCC is seeking to impose new taxes on the websites we visit and streaming services we use,” Szabo said.
