Statement in Support of the FCC Net Neutrality Vote

Washington, D.C. – Internet Association President and CEO Michael Beckerman issues the following statement in support of the FCC’s passage of net neutrality rules:

“Today’s FCC vote on net neutrality is a welcome step in our effort to create strong, enforceable net neutrality rules that apply to both mobile and fixed broadband — banning paid prioritization, blocking, and discrimination online. The Internet Association remains outcome-oriented, and it looks forward to seeing the full text of the order to ensure that the end user experience and the free and open Internet is fully protected by the FCC’s action. Today will not be the end of the discussion. The Internet Association is prepared to work with all stakeholders to ensure that net neutrality rules are meaningful and lasting for Internet companies and users of today and tomorrow.”
