Mobile Future Statement on FCC Plan to Impose New Regulations on Broadband

Today, FCC Chairman Genachowski issued a statement regarding the Commission’s proposed path forward for broadband regulations.

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

“The wireless sector has been a terrific success story in many ways because policymakers wisely decided against intervening in a market with tremendous potential. We strongly encourage the FCC to carefully consider any change in the rules restricting broadband providers. Overreaching authority will impose barriers that slow deployment, undermine growth, impact U.S. jobs, and make it more difficult to achieve the important goals of the National Broadband Plan.”
