San Francisco – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released this statement following reports that FCC Chairman Ajit Pai will move to reverse net neutrality rules:
“The FCC has launched an all-out assault on the entrepreneurship, innovation and competition at the heart of the internet. 

“The FCC’s moves to dismantle net neutrality will further stack the playing field in favor of the biggest bank account, chilling competition, hurting consumers and punishing entrepreneurs and small businesses.  Eight months after allowing internet service providers to sell Americans’ private browsing history and intimate personal information, the Administration is moving to destroy the openness and dynamism of the internet.

“Millions of Americans made their voices heard in support of the net neutrality standards that Chairman Pai now plans to eviscerate.  We must once again mobilize to protect the freedom of the internet from this newest threat.”
