WASHINGTON, DCU.S. Representative Mark Pocan (WI-02) today released the following statement regarding the Federal Communications Commission’s vote to eliminate the Open Internet Order and end the long held principle of net neutrality.

“Millions of Americans have called on the FCC to support an open Internet, not one that is controlled by a handful of powerful corporations that could charge extra for higher speeds and more access. Despite these calls, the FCC rejected the will of the American people and voted to hand the Internet over to special interests.

“Net neutrality evens the playing field, protects consumers, and ensures that small businesses can remain competitive. Now that the FCC has completed a process filled with secrecy, technical flaws, and fraud, this decision must be revisited. Congress should immediately find a legislative solution to ensure that net neutrality remains the law.”
