Internet Association Calls For FCC To Vote Down Proposal To Gut Net Neutrality Protections
Beckerman to FCC: “On behalf of our companies, their employees and, most importantly, millions of users, we ask that you delay or vote against the draft Order.”
Washington, DC – Today, Internet Association President & CEO Michael Beckerman sent a letter to Chairman Ajit Pai and Commissioners Clyburn, O’Rielly, Carr, and Rosenworcel calling for the FCC to delay or vote against the draft Restoring Internet Freedom Order.
“The draft ‘Restoring Internet Freedom Order’ under consideration by the FCC undoes decades of bipartisan agreement on net neutrality principles and ends net neutrality as we know it. This draft Order ignores the wishes of tens of millions of Americans who, like us, have voiced their support for the 2015 Open Internet Order,” the letter states.
Internet Association supports the 2015 Open Internet Order that enshrined bright-line net neutrality rules that ban paid prioritization, blocking, throttling, and apply equally to mobile internet connections.
“IA and its members will continue our fight to preserve the 2015 Order and its strong, enforceable net neutrality protections. On behalf of our companies, their employees and, most importantly, millions of users, we ask that you delay or vote against the draft Order,” the letter concludes.
