Eshoo Statement on Proposed FCC Net Neutrality Rules

April 24th, 2014

PALO ALTO, Calif.—Rep. Anna G. Eshoo (D-Calif.), Ranking Member of the Communications and Technology Subcommittee, issued the following statement regarding the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) draft Open Internet Notice of Proposed Rulemaking:

“Like many Internet users, I fear that the latest round of proposed net neutrality rules from the FCC will not do enough to curtail discrimination of Internet traffic, but rather leave the door open to discrimination under more ambiguous terms.

“For me to support 'commercially reasonable' agreements between financially liquid online content companies and broadband providers for faster Internet speeds, there must be zero uncertainty left in the minds of consumers, small businesses and innovators that they are competing on a level playing field with their peers. Fundamentally, consumers and businesses must be protected from actions by online gatekeepers that threaten free speech, harm competition or diminish the continued openness of the Internet.

“I will stringently evaluate the Chairman's proposal to ensure that these core values are elevated by any final net neutrality rules.”
