Jul 12 2017 - FCC

All of us favor a free and open internet. The only question for the FCC is what is the best legal framework to secure some of those core values that have given us a digital economy that is the envy of the world. The more heavily you regulate something, the less of it you're likely to get.feedback

Jul 11 2017

We will not rely on hyperbolic statements about the end of the internet as we know it, and 140-character argle-bargle [nonsense], but rather on the data.feedback

May 26 2017 - FCC

We will make our decision based on the facts that are in the record and on the relevant law that is presented – and obviously fake comments such as the ones submitted last week by the Flash, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Superman are not going to dramatically impact our deliberations on this issue.feedback

May 26 2017

Of course, this is not new: fake comments were filed in the 2014-15 proceeding under names like Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse, and Stalin, just to name a few. This time around, I think the bottom line is … I urge everyone who's interested in this issue to participate in the process in an honest and forthright way, and that is, I think, the best way to make sure your voice is heard.feedback

May 08 2017

I look forward to returning to the light-touch, market-based framework that unleashed the digital revolution and benefited consumers here and around the world. All we are simply doing is putting engineers and entrepreneurs, instead of bureaucrats and lawyers, back in charge of the internet.feedback

May 06 2017 - Supreme Court

I have had a chance to see the clip now and so, as we get complaints – and we have gotten a number of them – we are going to take the facts that we find and we are going to apply the law as it's been set out by the Supreme Court and a number of other courts. We'll take the appropriate action. After 10 p.m., the amount of conduct that the indecency rules are applied to is relaxed. In previous years, these complaints would just sit on the shelf and we're committed to making sure we evaluate these cases and try to do it in a timely way.feedback

May 05 2017 - FCC

We're reviewing the FCC's rules across the board and deciding which ones still make sense in the digital age. When the facts warrant, we will not hesitate to revise overly burdensome rules or repeal them altogether. We will make a decision within one year. There will be no more waiting indefinitely for an answer. The fundamental question is this: Do we want that money to be diverted to lawyers and accountants, figuring out how to comply with FCC rules? Or do we want it spent delivering American consumers better, faster, cheaper Internet access?feedback

May 01 2017 - FCC

It's the fundamental driver of the policies that I'm trying to promote at the FCC, because I've seen for myself in my own childhood, and as a commissioner having traveled around the country from Alaska to Mississippi, that there are some big gaps in America in terms of connectivity. We just want every company that is handling consumers' data to handle it in the same way. I think that's something that would give consumers a much better sense of confidence when they go online.feedback

Apr 17 2017 - FCC

I view my role as being a rather boring, frankly, and humble one, which is to take a look at the papers that are in front of me, and analyze the facts soberly, and make an informed decision based on the law and the precedents.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - FCC

Where this competition exists, we will relax unnecessary regulation, thereby creating greater incentives for the private sector to invest in next-generation networks. But where competition is still lacking, we'll preserve regulations necessary to prevent anti-competitive price increases.feedback

Mar 28 2017 - FCC

Moving forward, I want the American people to know that the FCC will work with the FTC to ensure that consumers' online privacy is protected though a consistent and comprehensive framework.

The marketplace right now is extremely competitive, it's delivering unparalleled value to American consumers.

That's something that's good for customers.feedback

Feb 28 2017 - FCC

The FCC decided to apply last-century, utility-style regulation to today's broadband networks. Our new approach injected tremendous uncertainty into the broadband market. And uncertainty is the enemy of growth.feedback

Feb 28 2017 - AT&T

As I understand it, the parties have structured the deal such that it won't require paperwork with the FCC. The law as it is stated gives the FCC very limited authority and only if there is a transfer of control of a license between the two parties does the FCC get involved.feedback

Feb 22 2017 - FCC

My own view is that the internet should be run by technologists and engineers and business people, not by lawyers and bureaucrats here in the nation's capital. Light touch regulation means that we create broad regulatory frameworks that can protect consumers to ensure an overall competitive marketplace. But we shouldn't micromanage how these companies operate their businesses in the absence of evidence of a market failure.feedback

Feb 22 2017 - FCC

Light touch regulation, in this context, means that we let this dynamic industry, arguably the most dynamic the free market has ever known, develop. And if there are targeted cases where action might be necessary and the FCC has authority to act, then we take action.feedback

Today, the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau is closing its investigation into wireless carriers' free-data offerings. These free-data plans have proven to be popular among consumers, particularly low-income Americans, and have enhanced competition in the wireless marketplace. Going forward, the Federal Communications Commission will not focus on denying Americans free data. Instead, we will concentrate on expanding broadband deployment and encouraging innovative service offerings.feedback

Feb 02 2017 - FCC
