IIA Statement on BDS Ruling

We applaud the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeal decision to deny a motion to stay the effect of the FCC’s new BDS rules. This action ensures that the agency’s rules that encourage greater investment and facilities-based competition among the networks serving American businesses will continue to move forward. Given that network infrastructure typically serves both businesses and consumers, all Americans stand to benefit from the advancement of policies that promote investment and deployment in high-speed 21st century broadband services and applications.
