Statement In Support Of The U.S. Court of Appeals Decision On Net Neutrality

Washington, D.C. – Internet Association President and CEO Michael Beckerman issues the following statement in support of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit decision to uphold the FCC’s net neutrality rules:

“The outcome of today’s U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruling is a landmark event in the history of the internet. The court’s decision to uphold and recognize the legality of strong, enforceable net neutrality rules for both mobile and fixed broadband internet connections is a victory for U.S. consumers. Through this ruling, the court has ensured that paid prioritization, blocking, and discrimination of content has no place in a free and open internet. This will benefit all consumers, bring certainty to the internet community, and ensure that the open and innovative internet continues to flourish into the future. Internet companies will remain engaged to ensure enforceable net neutrality rules permanently protect consumers from censorship online.”
