TIA Says FCC Refused Fair, Reasonable Request to Delay Sweeping Internet Regulations
Arlington, Va. (May 8, 2015) – The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), the leading association representing the manufacturers and suppliers of high-tech communications networks, today commented on the FCC’s denial of a motion to stay its net neutrality order.
TIA CEO Scott Belcher released the following statement:
“It is deeply disappointing that the FCC has refused a fair and reasonable request to delay the imposition of sweeping new regulations of the Internet that will impact investment in our broadband ecosystem. Let me be clear, these rules will curtail the deployment and expansion of communications networks.”
