Public Knowledge Encouraged By FCC Recognition of Need for Meaningful Net Neutrality Rules

May 8, 2014 ,

Today, FCC Commissioners Rosenworcel and Clyburn issued comments supporting meaningful Open Internet rules. These comments follow on statements from Chairman Wheeler indicating that he remains open to Title II, or “reclassification” of broadband access as a telecommunications service.

The following can be attributed to Michael Weinberg, Vice President at Public Knowledge: 

“We've been encouraged by recent statements from Chairman Wheeler and Commissioners Clyburn and Rosenworcel that show they understand the need for meaningful net neutrality rules. As Public Knowledge has long maintained, Title II provides the best legal authority to protect a free and open Internet. We look forward to working with the entire Commission to help it craft a robust framework that protects Internet users.”
