Statement: Irony from Net Neutrality Advocates

Background: Intervenors and amici in support of petitioners in Mozilla corporation, et. al. v the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) filed briefs with a U.S. federal appeals court to overturn the FCC’s Restoring Internet Freedom Order.

The following statement can be attributed to Jonathan Spalter, President & CEO, USTelecom:

“It’s ironic—but not unexpected—that the companies which have become the internet’s most powerful gatekeepers are claiming to fight for a free and open internet that exempts them from the very rules for which they are advocating. It’s time for Congress to pass legislation that provides uniform consumer protections that apply to all companies in the internet ecosystem, and will truly preserve and protect net neutrality principles for all.”
