Ahead of today’s speech by Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai, FreedomWorks Foundation is pleased to announce our support of the final proposed Restoring Internet Freedom Order—ending public utility regulation of Internet service providers under Title II of the Communications Act and repealing expansive and vague standards of practice that have crippled broadband investment.

FreedomWorks Foundation Looks Forward to Supporting Final Restoring Internet Freedom Order

Today, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai circulated copies of the final Restoring Internet Freedom Order with his fellow commissioners. Tomorrow, copies will be made available to the public. This is a full three weeks prior to the vote on the proposal, an unprecedented level of transparency compared to the previous administration. The order is expected to reverse the 2015 FCC order subjecting internet service providers to vague and burdensome standards of public utility regulation under Title II of the Communications Act of 1934. The specter of Title II regulation has already killed upwards of $125 billion in broadband infrastructure deployment.

FreedomWorks Foundation Praises Continued Regulatory Discipline at FCC Under Chairman Pai

Today, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai announced before the House and Energy Commerce Committee updates to the Commission’s regulatory framework on media ownership. This modernization is long overdue, reflecting the massive changes in how Americans consume news and entertainment with advent of the Internet. These updates will also allow for struggling local broadcast stations and newspapers to compete more effectively with cable and Internet content providers.
