TIA Responds to Federal Appeals Court Ruling on Net Neutrality

ARLINGTON, VA (January 15, 2014) – The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), the leading association representing the manufacturers and suppliers of high-tech communications networks, today responded to yesterday’s federal appeals court decision striking down the FCC’s net neutrality rules.

TIA President Grant Seiffert states, “We have long-advocated for consumers' right to connect devices and access content over the Internet.  In light of the Court's decision, we rely on all interested parties to maintain an ecosystem where industry can continue to innovate and consumers are protected.  Internet service providers have already expressed continued commitment to maintaining an open Internet.  As manufacturers and suppliers of network equipment and broadband-enabled devices, we are encouraged by the certainty this commitment provides in and of itself.  And we are also confident that remedies exist in our legal system that will protect consumers’ rights.”
