Congressman Doyle Condemns FCC Net Neutrality Plan

Washington, DC – U.S. Representative Mike Doyle (D-PA-14) released the following statement in response to Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai’s announcement that the Commission would vote to begin the process of removing Title II status for internet service at its December 14 meeting.
“Today Chairman Pai began his final assault on the Open Internet Order and Net Neutrality. His announcement today of plans to repeal Title 2 is another nail in the coffin of the FCC rules that protect consumers, competition, and innovation. Chairman Pai’s agenda has been an unending stream of giveaways to major corporations and Trump allies. Consumers, small businesses, and the most vulnerable amongst us have consistently gotten shafted by this Chairman and the Trump Administration. 

“I am disappointed and angry that, despite the evidence, despite court decisions, despite widespread bipartisan public support for a free and open Internet, and despite 22 MILLION comments overwhelmingly in support of Net Neutrality, Chairman Pai today has announced his intentions to repeal the Open Internet Order.”
