Statement of Cisco’s VP of Government Affairs Jeff Campbell On FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s Vision for Updated Net Neutrality Policy

April 26, 2017 - 2 Comments

“FCC Chairman Ajit Pai today laid out his vision for revising net neutrality policy.  The proposal will review what is needed to protect consumers and prevent anti-competitive behavior, while rolling back Title II reclassification, which has inhibited investment.

The balanced approach Commissioner Pai unveiled will encourage new investments in broadband networks and speed the development of innovative services, including Internet of Things technologies, telemedicine, distance learning, emergency services, and mobile 5G.

The Internet ecosystem continues to evolve at an unprecedented pace, creating significant opportunities for Americans.  It is our hope that this new vision will be the first step in creating sustainable light touch regulation for the Internet once and for all.”

  1. So Cisco supports rolling back Title II classification…interesting. Cisco really likes to be counter-tech. Over 100 tech firms signed onto a legal brief condemning the President’s travel ban. Noticeably absent however were Cisco and Oracle. Now, hundreds of tech firms have lined up to oppose the roll back of Title II classification for ISPs. Noticeably absent once again, Cisco and Oracle. I’m sure those bold stances are likely to appeal to millennials, the talent pool you desperately need to attract and retain to remain competitive in today’s market… Good luck.
