WASHINGTON – After filing ajoint brief[PDF] on the Open Internet to the U.S. Court of Appeals in the D.C. Circuit, the following statement should be attributed to CTIA-The Wireless Association® President and CEO Meredith Attwell Baker:
“America’s global mobile leadership is at risk under the FCC’s heavy-handed net neutrality rules on wireless broadband. There is no question: wireless is different. Due to the technical realities of wireless networks, providers must be able to manage usage so that all consumers have the highest quality experience. By all accounts, under light-touch regulation the U.S. wireless industry created jobs, boosted our economy and provided numerous benefits for Americans. We should maintain this approach that has been supported on a bipartisan basis for decades. We must make sure we remain the envy of the world by encouraging continued investment, innovation and competition in our mobile platform.”
