Statement On The 21st Century Internet Act

Washington, DC – Internet Association President & CEO Michael Beckerman released the following statement on the introduction of the 21st Century Internet Act as introduced by Representative Mike Coffman (R-CO):

“The internet industry commends Rep. Coffman for his thoughtful approach to preserving net neutrality protections. A majority of Americans agree that consumers should have access to the entire internet and ISPs should not be able to engage in blocking, throttling, or paid prioritization of traffic on the internet. The 21st Century Internet Act reflects these principles and is a step in the right direction.

“Net neutrality is a consumer issue, not a partisan one. The internet industry remains outcome oriented to achieve strong, enforceable net neutrality rules through the courts, the FCC, and bipartisan legislation, including the CRA.”
