Diverse Set Of Groups Thank FCC For Supporting Net Neutrality

“The FCC followed the letter of the law by voting for reclassification, and it heeded the calls of millions of Americans. You proved that sound policy that benefits the public interest can carry the day in Washington. Your vote will help keep the Internet open for years to come, free from slow lanes and gatekeeping, which will enable future generations to enjoy the greatest platform for free expression, democracy, and innovation the world has ever known. If Congress acts, it should consider the FCC’s rule the floor, and not the ceiling, when it comes to the protections afforded Americans.” The groups also noted the bipartisan support for Net Neutrality and the FCC’s vote: “Those that support Net Neutrality and Title II represent a wide range of interests and political affiliations. What we have in common is an unwavering belief in the power of the Internet and the need to keep it open for the benefit of the public. This is not a partisan idea.”
