Please explain how the net neutrality rules proposed by this FCC in the current NPRM would make rural ISP services unprofitable?
It would outlaw the business models which many rural ISPs use to make service affordable and their businesses sustainable. It would increase their bandwidth costs, prevent them from stopping abuse, and lower their quality of service, causing them to lose customers and harming those customers who remain.
If that is the case, why are there many other rural WISPs who support net neutrality, so long as there are reasonable network management carve outs?
There are not many rural WISPs (or even many ISPs) who support this onerous regulation of their industry. Of course, there are always a few misinformed or gullible people who don't understand the full impact of the proposed rules or have been sold a bill of goods. But they're a tiny minority.
AT&T operated for two years under FCC net neutrality merger conditions, during which time they invested more, including building out to more rural areas, and their profits went up.
Those conditions were very different from what would be imposed by the FCC under the current NPRM.
I know you believe that this policy would hurt your business, but there is no evidence to support this belief.
There is very strong evidence to support it. See my many filings in the docket.
