“CTIA and the wireless industry commend FCC Chairman Pai for acting to free the Internet from investment-chilling utility style regulation. In doing so, Chairman Pai will restore the long-standing bipartisan approach to the Internet, which will help drive billions of new dollars into mobile broadband networks, boost our economy, and ensure that we continue to lead the world in mobile wireless services. The FCC’s critical action will allow our vibrantly competitive wireless market to drive new innovation and services for consumers, preserving an open Internet for all Americans.”
