NetCompetition.org Comments on FCC Open Internet NPRM

“The best way to preserve the open Internet is to preserve current pro-competition policy”

WASHINGTON – In response to the Federal Communications Commission’s proposed Open Internet NPRM today, NetCompetition.org Chairman Scott Cleland offered these comments for attribution:

· The best way to preserve an Open Internet is to preserve the pro-competition policies that currently sustain an Open Internet, not fundamentally change the character of the Open Internet by replacing competition with new Government regulation as the engine of Internet openness.”

· “The fundamental unease surrounding this proposed rulemaking is whether new, expanded, and formal FCC regulations could fundamentally transform the long-privatized Open Internet into a de facto public information commons or morph private broadband companies into de facto public utilities.”
