Ajit Pai - FCC

Apple is the one major phone manufacturer that has resisted [activating the FM chips in their phones]. But I hope the company will reconsider its position, given the devastation wrought by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria. That's why I am asking Apple to activate the FM chips that are in its iPhones. It is time for Apple to step up to the plate and put the safety of the American people first. As the Sun Sentinel of South Florida put it, Do the right thing, Mr. Cook. Flip the switch. Lives depend on

Ajit Pai - FCC

Looking at the bigger picture, most reasonable people see a fiercely competitive marketplace. It's been eight long years since the FCC has done what Congress directed us to do. Today, we are finally getting back on

Jessica Rosenworcel

While this report celebrates the presence of four nationwide wireless providers, let's be mindful that a transaction may soon be announced that seeks to combine two of these four. For my part, any transaction before us will require someone to explain how consumers will benefit, how prices will not rise, and how innovation will not dissipate in the face of so much more industry concentration. Someone will also need to explain how having fewer potential big bidders in upcoming spectrum auctions will not render our most potent distribution mechanism substantially less

Evan Greer

The unprecedented number of comments in the FCC docket underscores what everyone already knows: people freakin' love the free and open internet and are willing to fight tooth and nail to defend it. With the FCC public comment period closing, all eyes shift to Congress: will our lawmakers represent us and speak out against the FCC's plan to gut protections for free speech and innovation, or will they use this opportunity to launch a cynical attack on internet users' rights under the guise of 'compromise' legislation?feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

Net neutrality is the idea that the Internet should be free and open for everyone. If a service provider can block you from seeing certain content or can make you pay extra for it, that hurts all of us and we should have rules against it. Right now, the FCC has rules in place to make sure the internet continues to be an open platform for everyone. At Facebook, we strongly support those rules. We're also open to working with members of Congress and anyone else on laws to protect net

Ajit Pai - 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

Evan Greer

In true Internet fashion, every site is participating in its own way. Most are using our widgets that allow visitors to easily submit comments to the FCC and Congress without ever leaving the page that they're on. Many are getting creative and writing their own code or displaying their own banners in support of net neutrality that point to action

Evan Greer

The FCC needs to listen to the voices of real people who will be affected by this attack on net neutrality protections – not just lobbyists from telecom companies in pursuit of more power. The goal of the protest … is to ensure that ordinary people have a voice and are heard by decision makers in Washington, D.C. No one – regardless of their political affiliation – wants their cable company to control what they can see and do on the Internet, or to charge extra fees to access the content they

Lauren Culbertson - Twitter

The FCC should abandon its misguided effort to obviate all the work that has been done on behalf of all Internet

Dennis Wharton

It's the height of arrogance for Microsoft -- a $540 billion company -- to demand free, unlicensed spectrum after refusing to bid on broadcast TV airwaves in the recent FCC incentive auction. Microsoft's white space device development has been a well-documented, unmitigated failure. Policymakers should not be misled by slick Microsoft promises that threaten millions of viewers with loss of lifeline broadcast TV

Bryan Stirling

Now they're going to fly over the nets, so what do we do next? Is it going to be more money, more tax dollars? Call your representatives. Call the FCC. It's an open comment period. Let them know that this needs to be fixed. It needs to be fixed now. It needs to be fixed

Andrew Jay Schwartzman

Any way you cut it, this is very bad news for families and loved ones, not to mention the prisoners

Evan Greer

The internet has given more people a voice than ever before, and we're not going to let the FCC take that power away from us. Massive online mobilization got us the strong net neutrality protections that we have now, and we intend to fight tooth and nail to defend

Jeffrey Bewkes - Time Warner Cable

You have the FCC putting regulations on cable and telco companies, you have the FTC putting regulations on Facebook that are much more lax. I'd like to see it be

Ajit Pai - FCC

I encourage broad participation in this rule-making as in any FCC rule-making, and what matters most are the quality of the comments, not the quantity. 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

Hal Singer

This is what Dems need to realize: If they don't reach a compromise that involves some level of protection for websites, then we will forever toggle between zero protection under a GOP-led FCC, and maximal protection under a Democratic-led FCC. This back and forth is not good for websites, and it's not good for

Frank Pallone

Nobody believes the Republicans [who] are saying they want strong net neutrality, [or] they're going to come up with a better way. I'm not interested in this nonsense. It'll be a campaign issue if they repeal it. Our focus now is to say to the FCC, please don't do this. I think the Republicans don't understand how strongly people feel about this

Mark Stodden - Moody's

From where we sit, the overall level of investment in the business is still pretty strong. I hear companies complaining about net neutrality and Title II, but I think it's a cop-out. I don't think they're actually spending less. They don't like it so they complain about

Craig Silliman - Verizon

Verizon supports net neutrality. Our customers demand it and our business depends on it. Our customers should be able to access the internet wherever, whenever and however they choose. As a company that plays a role in virtually all parts of the web, we continue to strongly support efforts to keep the internet open and widely available. And we support common sense regulation to maintain and protect the open

John Thune

This fight is just starting. Just like in 2014, the public now has the opportunity to stand up, be heard, and influence the outcome. It will take millions people standing up, just like they did before, to say that the internet needs to stay free and open. That's what it will take to

I think we can all agree on that. I hope even the president and I can agree on that. Nothing else. But,

Evan Greer

The FCC should immediately release its logs to an independent security analyst or major news outlet to verify exactly what happened last night. The public deserves to know, and the FCC has a responsibility to maintain a functioning website and ensure that every member of the public who wants to submit a comment about net neutrality has the ability to do so. Anything less is a subversion of our

Evan Greer

Given [FCC Chairman Ajit Pai]'s open hostility toward net neutrality, and the telecom industry's long history of astroturfing and paying shady organizations to do their dirty work, either of these scenarios should be concerning for anyone who cares about government transparency, free speech, and the future of the

Francis Ford Coppola

Trusting the leadership of huge corporations with America's artistic heritage is a crucial mistake, and can already be seen in the 'monotony' of contemporary major studio cinema. The changes you are making at the FCC will only make the fragile balance between artist and businessman more impossible to maintain. I assure you that none of the films that I or my contemporaries are known and celebrated for could exist today in such a

Ajit Pai - 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

Ajit Pai - FCC

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

Ajit Pai - FCC

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 other courts and we'll take the appropriate action. Traditionally, the agency has to decide, if it does find a violation, what the appropriate remedy should be. A fine, of some sort, is typically what we

Ajit Pai - FCC

Their opinion is important going forward, however, because it makes clear that the FCC has the authority to classify broadband Internet access service as an information service, as I have proposed to do. I also agree with many of the points made by Judges [Janice] Brown and [Brett] Kavanaugh in their compelling opinions explaining why the Commission's Title II Order was

James Murdoch - Fox News Channel

With respect to potentially the FCC relaxing ownership caps on terrestrial TV stations in the U.S., no, I guess is the most straightforward way to answer the question. I hate [to comment] on future speculation and hypotheticals, but I think you can rest easy there. We really like the shape of our station business right

Today's decision is a win for consumers. The court agreed that Title II classification is sound, and that the FCC has authority to regulate the marketplace. Net neutrality is essential to a vibrant internet ecosystem, and CDT will continue to defend the open internet in the days and years to

Stacey Snider

Protecting copyright is the hallmark of Chris' leadership at MPAA and he helped create a fully integrated, global online antipiracy operation. His leadership in promoting copyright in the EU Digital Single Market process and preventing harmful FCC regulation of set top boxes in the U.S. set the precedent for defending the rights of creators in the rapidly evolving digital

Ajit Pai - FCC

We were not living in some digital dystopia before the partisan imposition of a massive plan hatched in Washington saved all of us. The next thing you'll hear is that Title II is necessary to protect free speech. That's right: some will argue that government control is the key to the ability to speak your mind on the Internet. Most Americans should recognize this absurdity for what it is. For government regulation is no friend to free speech, but its

Ajit Pai - FCC

There's common ground here and there's room for an agreement here. Going forward we want to make sure that we have a light touch regulatory framework. We are not living in a digital dystopia... Last year the United States experienced the first decline in broadband investment outside of a

The commission just wrapped up and put a bow on a huge gift for those large broadcasters, with ambitious dreams of more consolidation. Now I am not a betting woman, but mark my word: this order will have an immediate impact, on the purchase and sale of television

Ajit Pai - 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

Here we are in 2017, which is already way past where Marty McFly went into the future, and your privacy is under attack by the Biffs of the world. Earlier this week, the House of Representatives voted to repeal internet privacy protection that had been approved by the FCC. That's bad, and we need to fight

Bob Quinn - AT&T

The Congressional action had zero effect on the privacy protections afforded to consumers. If the government believes that location data is sensitive and requires more explicit consumer disclosures and permissions, then those protections should apply to all players that have access to location data, whether an ISP or edge player or search

Ajit Pai - FCC

Our goal should be ubiquitous competition, not universal rate regulation. Our guide should be the data – wherever it leads us – not an ideological drive to regulate. 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

Peter Eckersley - Electronic Frontier Foundation

Internet service providers are a distinctly severe threat to consumer privacy because we have little choice about whether to use them or not. If you're in a small American town with only one ISP you have literally no choice but to use

Russell Brandom - The Verge

It's much more permissive when it comes to 'aggregate' customer information, which is where things get squishier and the FCC rules become more important. We could argue all day about whether a targeted ad is individually identifiable or not, but if you're paying Verizon to find out which sites Paul Ryan visited last month, that's pretty clearly individual information, and pretty clearly illegal to

Kevin McCarthy

The internet has become the amazing tool that it is because it is largely left untouched by regulation–and that shouldn't stop now. The resolution we passed today will protect both consumers and the future of internet innovation by overturning this flawed FCC

Ajit Pai - FCC

I want the American people to know that the FCC will work with the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) to ensure that consumers' online privacy is protected though a consistent and comprehensive framework. In my view, the best way to achieve that result would be to return jurisdiction over broadband providers' privacy practices to the FTC, with its decades of experience and expertise in this

Kate Tummarello - Electronic Frontier Foundation

We are one vote away from a world where your [Internet Service Providers or ISP] can track your every move online and sell that information to the highest bidder. Those rules were a huge victory for consumers. Of course, the ISPs that stand to make money off of violating your privacy have been lobbying Congress to repeal those rules. Unfortunately, their anti-consumer push has been

Kevin Yoder

We don't want the government having access to our information without our consent, and the same goes for private business. These digital privacy protections put in place by the FCC are commonsense measures similar to long-standing rules that apply to phone companies that will simply ensure internet users can continue to have control over their personal information. I don't believe they should be repealed, and I will continue to fight for Americans' digital privacy

Ajit Pai - 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

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

Today, the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau is closing its investigation into wireless carriers' free-data offerings.

The idea that you might be able to charge for quality of service, for variability, the amount of traffic, the speed of the traffic, how you want to make sure the traffic is delivered, might change the ability to price it.
