FCC Rules to Preserve an Open Internet

Today, the Federal Communications Commission voted to adopt rules to preserve an open Internet.

The following statement should be attributed to Jonathan Spalter, chairman of the Mobile Future Coalition:

“We are encouraged that the FCC has voted today to move forward on the open Internet rules but we will need to review the fine print closely in the coming days to ensure the Commission has “walked its talk” in structuring a compromise that will ensure a measured, forward-looking policy framework that recognizes the dynamic nature of the wireless ecosystem and the importance of maintaining an environment that fosters investment, job creation and innovation in the communications sector.”
