Statement by Broadband for America Ahead of FCC Vote on Restoring Internet Freedom

America’s broadband providers are 100% committed to a free and open internet and have always practiced net neutrality regardless of government regulations or rules because that is what their customers demand.  Additionally, all of the major providers have announced clear and strong policies ensuring no blocking, no throttling, and no unfair discrimination against lawful traffic online. It’s good business, good practice, and what internet users expect. While we fully understand consumer interest in this issue, we also want to make clear that many false claims, wild accusations and doomsday scenarios circulating about the future of the internet are way off base and shouldn’t be taken at face value. The FCC’s proposed action next week will simply restore the light touch regulation that governed the internet from its existence until public utility rules were imposed in 2015 and will not change the free and open internet experience we all value and expect.
