Asian Women In Business Encouraged By Leadership Of Congress On Broadband Issue


NEW YORK -- Bonnie Wong, President of Asian Women in Business, issued the following statement in response to the letter issued by members of Congress urging the Federal Communications Commission to reconsider classifying broadband service as telephone service.

Asian Women in Business thanks the 106 members of Congress that have written to the Federal Communications Commission and urged them to carefully reconsider the announcement of net neutrality rules set forth in the FCC's "Third Way" announcement of May 6. Policy that seeks to manage competition by influencing the investment decisions of operators could have a negative impact on consumers, job growth and the economy.

As stated in the Commission's own Broadband Plan, the focus should be on expanding access and encouraging broadband adoption. The application of a regulatory framework could chill investment and consequently slow job growth and delay new applications.

We are encouraged to see Congressional engagement in clarifying regulatory authority over such a key issue as broadband Internet access.
