FreedomWorks Foundation Sends Comments to FCC on White Space Internet

FreedomWorks Foundation filed comments to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on Tuesday regarding spectrum regulations for TV white space Internet services. If permitted by the FCC, private firms could offer wireless broadband to people living in areas lacking internet infrastructure. The FCC is considering a hearing on white space in July that could lead to wider broadband accessibility in the future.

Support the Restoring Internet Freedom Act, S. 993

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your senators and ask them to cosponsor the Restoring Internet Freedom Act, S. 993, introduced by Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah). The bill would repeal the Federal Communications Commission’s 2015 Open Internet Order, through which the agency claimed regulatory power over the Internet, designating Internet service providers (ISPs) as “common carriers” under Title II of the Communications Act of 1934.

Net Neutrality Ruling: A Blow to Internet Freedom

In a blow to Internet freedom, a federal appeals court has given a green light to the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) Open Internet Order, a plan to impose net neutrality rules on the Internet. Most disturbingly, the ruling yesterday by a 3-judge panel of the D.C.

In one of the most egregious instances of overreaching by federal agencies under the Obama Administration, the FCC used the determination to grant itself sweeping power to regulate the Internet, opening the door to a plethora of burdensome Internet regulations.
