The Internet Tax Freedom Act keeps broadband prices down and encourages faster adoption rates of internet technology. However, the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities' Michael Mazerov claims that price is not a significant factor in limiting broadband adoption. The evidence says otherwise, including the evidence that Mazerov himself cites. In reality, the literature shows that cost has a large impact on broadband adoption and is the limiting factor for most non-subscribers.
