03.15.2018

Background: USTelecom Today Filed With the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in support of the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) Restoring Internet Freedom Order.

The following statement is from USTelecom CEO Jonathan Spalter:

“Today we filed to intervene in the Court’s review of the Restoring Internet Freedom Order to support the FCC in protecting the Order’s pro-consumer, pro-innovation and pro-investment approach to safeguarding the net neutrality protections broadband providers have universally embraced. The Order paves the way for broadband companies to continue investing vigorously in stronger, faster networks, free from the bureaucratic straightjacket of outdated regulations.”
