The Federal Communications Commission today launched a rulemaking seeking public comment on new net neutrality rules.
“CenturyLink’s network is built so customers can access the Internet whenever, wherever and however they choose,” said CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE: CTL) Executive Vice President for Public Policy and Government Relations Steve Davis. “We strongly support a vibrant and open Internet. We believe that above all else, any regulation of the Internet must help, not harm consumers. This means both assuring openness, as well as assuring that the Internet continues to grow to meet rapidly escalating customer demand. Customers who want higher speeds or better performance levels should be allowed to pay for them, but regulations should not require those who don’t want higher speeds or increased performance levels to pay the same rates as those who do.”
