We warmly welcomed the Commission’s decision to adopt the Restoring Internet Freedom Order and have followed its impact in the marketplace. In brief, we believe the Commission acted just in time to encourage the explosion of new investment that will be necessary for the Nation to make the transition to 5G networks and to fill current gaps in networks operating at lower speeds. We further believe that this expansion of investment will have direct benefits for public safety, an important category of broadband users and an issue on which the Commission seeks to refresh the record. Our comments thus reiterate our opposition to “utility-style regulation of the Internet” and focus on the Order’s positive impact on investment in broadband networks.
