STATEMENT: Mobile Future Applauds Restoring Internet Freedom Order

November 21, 2017

WASHINGTON, DC – In response to the circulation of the Restoring Internet Freedom order, the following quote should be attributed to Robert M. McDowell, Chief Public Policy Advisor for Mobile Future: 

“Mobile Future applauds the Federal Communications Commission’s action to remove the antiquated and heavy-handed Title II regulatory regime that is stifling the free and open Internet. The previous FCC’s decision to impose common carrier regulation has chilled investment in mobile infrastructure and deterred innovation. Under Chairman Ajit Pai’s leadership, the FCC is correct to focus on the power of mobile broadband to spur economic growth and bring broadband to all Americans. The Restoring Internet Freedom Order is a critical component of that agenda and we look forward to working with the entire Commission to continue to advance smart policies needed for even greater innovation and investment in America’s dynamic mobile ecosystem.”
