FCC Decision To Protect Consumers Hailed

 



WASHINGTON – Free Press commends Julius Genachowski, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, for stating his intent to move to reclassify broadband as a Title II telecommunications service.

Free Press President and CEO Josh Silver said, “The FCC is sending a clear signal that they are backing away from the cliff.  It appears they are charting a path toward a sensible broadband policy framework that will protect consumers and promote universal access.  This is extremely welcome news.  We reserve judgment, however, on whether the FCC has gone far enough to protect consumers with this new proposal.  We are eager to see the details and evaluate whether the Commission’s approach is the best path toward achieving the goals of open, affordable, world-class Internet access. We are gratified that the calls from consumers and concerned Internet users across America are being heard. The Chairman is stepping up to the plate.”
