Arlington, Va. (August 29, 2014) – The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), the leading association representing the manufacturers and suppliers of high-tech communications networks, today filed comments with the FCC in support of action to pre-empt certain state laws prohibiting municipalities from investing in broadband facilities.

The comments state: "TIA has been a strong proponent of ubiquitous broadband deployment. Experience indicates that the overwhelming majority of such deployment will come from private sector investment. TIA opposes state laws that erect explicit or de facto barriers to any municipal broadband deployment initiatives. Municipalities must be allowed to pursue broadband network solutions, and private sector firms must not be foreclosed from choosing to invest in and partner with municipalities."
