CASE Thanks FCC Chairman Pai for Decision to Delete Title II Regulation of Internet
(Arlington, Virginia) — Consumer Action for a Strong Economy (CASE) today issued a statement praising FCC Chairman Ajit Pai for his decision to end the 2015 order that put the internet under Title II regulation of the Communications Act of 1934. The FCC will vote to finalize this proposal on December 14.
“On behalf of America’s consumers, who have come to rely on the revolutionary technology and innovation that the internet has brought into our lives over the past two decades, CASE offers an enthusiastic ‘Thank You’ to Chairman Pai for putting politics aside and bringing transparency and concern for real consumers back to the FCC.
“There was no doubt that getting rid of the Title II reclassification of internet services was going to be a battle, with radical netroots peddling dishonest and hysterical propaganda designed to deceive consumers regarding their fraudulent agenda. Thankfully, Chairman Pai’s proposal rises above this political fear-mongering and is poised to deliver the kind of sound, straightforward policy our nation needs to spark the innovation that will foster more freedom, more prosperity, and more possibilities for all Americans.”
