ATLANTA, Sept. 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Julius H. Hollis, Chairman of the Alliance for Digital Equality (ADE), issued the following statement regarding the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) announcement that the commission will seek further public comments on net neutrality policy:
“I am pleased that the FCC is continuing to seek different perspectives on broadband policy from a wide array of groups and industry leaders. It is critical that we find the best way forward through open dialogue and common sense agreements on Internet policy. Delivering broadband access to the 14 million Americans currently unconnected should be a top priority and Washington must be focused on achieving this goal.
“Right now our objective should be creating jobs, expanding small businesses and creating a regulatory environment that incentivizes ‘all’ private investment to work in harmony with the United States Government.
“As the debate continues, it is critical that we work to find true consensus that will create a positive path forward. By further pursuing the principles in the National Broadband Plan and maintaining an open Internet we will be on the right track to create jobs, revive our economy, provide opportunities to underserved and un-served communities and play a larger role in the Digital Revolution. We look forward to working with Congress and the FCC to achieve this and finally put the empowerment tool of broadband into the hands of every American.”
