Mobile Future Statement on FCC Chairman’s Intention to Impose Title II Net Neutrality Rules

WASHINGTON, D.C. Today, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler indicated his intention to introduce a proposal to fundamentally change the way the Commission oversees high-speed Internet service by reclassifying broadband as a Title II telecommunications service under the Communications Act. Mobile Future Chair Jonathan Spalter responded, stating:

“The Chairman’s plan to impose overreaching, outdated regulations to the broadband arena will increase uncertainty in the U.S. communications sector and could have grave implications for mobile innovators, investors and consumers. While we strongly support an open Internet, it is deeply disappointing that the FCC is turning its back on decades of bipartisan, pro-consumer, pro-investment policies that have led to the dynamic mobile marketplace that hundreds of millions of Americans enjoy today.”
