Statement on Draft FCC NPRM on Net Neutrality

Washington, D.C.— Today, the FCC released a draft Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to reclassify broadband as a Title II service.

The following statement is from Jonathan Spalter, president & CEO of USTelecom – The Broadband Association:

“The FCC’s proposal to treat broadband as a Title II telecommunications service puts achieving our national goal of universal connectivity at serious risk. Consumers today connect to a thriving, open internet at faster speeds and lower prices. Retrofitting outdated rules onto today’s competitive broadband networks is simply the wrong approach. Congress must step in to end this ludicrous regulatory rinse and repeat cycle.”
