Kuster Backs Bill to Restore Net Neutrality Protections

Press Release

(Washington, DC) – Today, Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) announced that she is cosponsoring legislation introduced by Congressman Mike Doyle (PA-14) to reject the FCC’s order to repeal Net Neutrality protections for millions of Americans.

In December, the Federal Communications Commission voted to reverse the Open Internet Order, which regulated Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in order to ensure net neutrality.

“The message I’ve heard from thousands of Granite Staters has been abundantly clear, Congress should overturn the FCC’s misguided proposal to repeal net neutrality protections,” said Kuster. “It is imperative that New Hampshire consumers and small businesses are able to maintain the freedom to access internet services without obstruction from Internet Service Providers.  To compete in a 21st Century economy, we must ensure that the internet allows for a free exchange of ideas, and this common sense legislation would pave the way for a simple up or down vote in Congress to restore net neutrality protections for all Americans.”
