WASHINGTON -- Statement of NCTA President & CEO Kyle McSlarrow Regarding the FCC Proceeding on Broadband Internet Access Legal Framework

“Over the past decade, broadband deployment in America has been an unparalleled success story. That success has been greatly aided by the farsighted judgment of prior Democratic and Republican Commissions to promote innovation and investment in new networks through the exercise of regulatory restraint. As we revisit this question with the start of today’s inquiry, we see little benefit to changing course and great danger in attempting to shoehorn modern broadband services into a Depression-era regulatory regime without serious collateral effects to investment, employment, and innovation.

“We appreciate that Chairman Genachowski is seeking comment on alternatives to a Title II approach. We also very much appreciate and agree with the Chairman’s statement of support for legislative efforts to provide much needed certainty. We believe that is the right next step, and we can preserve our ability to protect consumers, maintain an open Internet, and encourage continued investment and innovation through carefully targeted legislation.”
