"The administration's decision to subject the Internet — a constantly changing, crucially important sector of our economy — to outdated regulations designed for the age of the rotary telephone will serve only to stifle innovation and discourage growth. The Internet has been the source of success in recent years because government has largely stayed out of the way. The FCC's power grab, which will mean government regulation dictating how Internet providers can and cannot serve their customers, is a recipe for stagnation, not innovation.
"Existing law provides all the tools necessary to ensure that Internet companies treat customers fairly and honestly. The right way to promote a free and open Internet is to vigorously enforce our nation's antitrust laws, not to shoehorn a great powerhouse of modern innovation into a ninety-year-old framework."
