According to a recent survey conducted by McLaughlin & Associates and Penn, Schoen & Berland Associates, 56 percent of New Yorkers oppose new state government regulations on their wireless service and 70 percent of New Yorkers believe regulations will make their service more expensive. The survey comes as state lawmakers are weighing a proposal that would offer more consumer protection for wireless subscribers. About 71 percent of respondents said adding the new regulations would make service worse or would do nothing to improve it, while 14 percent said the regulations would improve service. If a "bill of rights" would end up raising the price of wireless services, more than 75 percent of respondents said they are not willing to pay more for the provisions.
