Statement: 8th Circuit BDS Opinion a Win for Broadband Investment

Background: Today the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the vast majority of the FCC’s decision easing regulation of business data services of internet service providers. 

The following statement can be attributed to Jonathan Spalter, President & CEO, USTelecom:

“Today’s court decision is a win for consumers and another important step toward modernizing the delivery of broadband services and incentivizing new investment in the most efficient and effective way. While the transport issue was vacated on procedural grounds, we are confident that upon remand, the FCC will find that transport services are fully competitive and not subject to pricing regulation.”
