Statement: California Net Neutrality Bill

Background: Today, California Governor Jerry Brown signed SB 822 to impose new regulations on internet service providers operating in the state.

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

“We all support strong and enforceable net neutrality protections for every American – regardless of where they may live. But this bill is neither the way to get there, nor will it help advance the promise and potential of California’s innovation DNA. Rather than 50 states stepping in with their own conflicting open internet solutions, we need Congress to step up with a national framework for the whole internet ecosystem and resolve this issue once and for all.”
