Representative Marsha Blackburn supports roll back of Net Neutrality

 

Congressman Marsha Blackburn

7th District of Tennessee

U.S. CongressWashington, D.C. – The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted Thursday to roll back Obama-era internet regulations called “net neutrality.” I fully support FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s decision on this. Let me tell you why.

There’s a lot of confusion about the term “net-neutrality,” which leads consumers to believe that before 2015 it was difficult to have free and fair access to the internet. This is not the case. Were you able to access the internet before 2015? Could you access websites for free? The answer is most likely yes. FCC regulations were not needed then, and they aren’t needed now. But there are some big internet issues we need to solve.
