Thousands of Citizens Protest Move to Regulate Internet

10,000 IFL Supporters File Comments with FCC

Regulations Not Necessary to Offer Americans the Open Internet They Already Have.

"Americans are increasingly concerned about government intrusion into nearly every aspect of the economy and their lives," according to Andrew Langer, President of the Institute for Liberty, "and the thousands of citizens who have told the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to keep its hands off the Internet is proof that the technology sector is no exception."

"Over ten thousand Institute for Liberty supporters have filed comments with the FCC in the past week, opposing FCC regulations claiming to enforce some form of 'network neutrality,' even though we already have a free and open Internet, and there is absolutely no evidence to suggest that freedom and openness is threatened," according to Langer.

Langer concluded that "the FCC should acknowledge that network neutrality regulations are a solution in search of a problem. The American people are awakening to the fact that these so-called 'network neutrality' regulations are part of the radical leftist agenda of organizations such as Free Press, and the more the American people learn about such vast expansions of Federal power, the greater their opposition."

The Institute for Liberty supports keeping the government focused on the primary mission of making sure our nation is safe, while keeping it from unnecessarily interfering in the daily lives of America's entrepreneurs.
