INCOMPAS Statement on Net Neutrality Item in the April Meeting

WASHINGTON, D.C. – April 3, 2024 – INCOMPAS CEO Chip Pickering released the following statement in response to the Federal Communications Commissions (FCC) announcement regarding the Net Neutrality item in the April meeting:

“We have always believed that competition drives innovation, growth and helps spread connectivity. In terms of the internet, that means open systems that ensure every consumer can access the lawful online content and services of their choice. While we would prefer Congress to act on this important issue, in light of congressional inaction we applaud Chairwoman Rosenworcel's announcement today that the Commission will vote on the Net Neutrality item in the April meeting. We look forward to reviewing the draft Order and providing our feedback to ensure that the rules are strong as possible, the Commission’s universal service mission can be achieved and broadband competition is improved.”
