More On the New FCC Open Internet Initiative From FCC Commissioners

Statement of FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel:

I support an open Internet. That is why I am pleased that the D.C. Circuit recognized the Commission’s authority to encourage the deployment of broadband infrastructure. I also support the actions Chairman Wheeler has announced today in light of this court decision. I look forward to working with my colleagues to develop policies that ensure the Internet continues to drive innovation, experimentation, and economic growth.



Statement of FCC Commissioner Mignon L. Clyburn:

I applaud Chairman Wheeler for announcing a path forward to ensure a free and open Internet. The Commission must act expeditiously to adopt clear, enforceable rules that protect the openness of the Internet while continuing to promote innovation and investment. I am also pleased that the Chairman announced that the Commission will look for opportunities to enhance broadband competition including examining restrictions on the ability of municipalities to offer broadband -- restrictions that I have long advocated be eliminated. I look forward to working with the Chairman on these important issues.
