ACA, CTIA, NCTA and USTelecom Statement on Proposal to Delay Litigation Against Vermont Internet Bill .

BACKGROUND: Vermont, the Department of Justice and ACA, CTIA, NCTA and USTelecom – representing America’s broadband providers – have today agreed to propose a delay in federal court litigation against Vermont’s internet bill while the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals continues consideration of Mozilla Corporation v. Federal Communications Commission. Vermont has also agreed not to enforce its net neutrality statute or executive order until that case is resolved.

The following statement is for attribution to ACA, CTIA, NCTA and USTelecom:

“Vermont’s decision not to enforce its statute and executive order regulating the internet while the D.C. Circuit reviews the FCC’s 2017 Restoring Internet Freedom Order is a win for consumers that will allow continued innovation and investment while these deliberations continue. Our companies support an open internet, and we urge Congress to resolve this issue by passing a national framework to protect that principle for all Americans.”

Please see the documents (1) and (2) filed with the United States District Court for the District of Vermont.
