Statement of NCTA Regarding Legislation That Would Prohibit Title II Regulation of Broadband Service

{Background: Congressman Bob Latta (R-OH) late yesterday introduced legislation to limit the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) authority to regulate broadband under Title II of the Communications Act.}

“Since the late 1990's, policymakers and regulators have established a bipartisan consensus that a light regulatory touch provides the best path for ensuring that the Internet will become an engine of economic growth and social prosperity. We support the efforts of Vice Chairman Latta to codify current policy and to ensure that the Internet continues to grow and remains open and free from the burdens of outdated, public utility regulation.”
