Statement on FCC Vote to Restore Net Neutrality

"I commend the FCC for restoring net neutrality, a crucial step for internet freedom. Classifying broadband as an essential 'telecommunications' service under Title II is a common-sense approach aligned with the wishes of millions of Americans.

Preventing ISPs from blocking legal content, throttling speeds, and creating fast lanes is vital for a fair and open internet. The reinstatement of Title II oversight addresses net neutrality violations, expands affordable broadband access, and curbs privacy abuses.

I applaud the FCC's persistence in this fight for an open and accessible internet despite corporate challenges. I also urge all members of Congress to support this effort, ensuring all Americans have affordable, reliable, and safe internet connections.”
