Statement of Jeff Campbell on Open Internet Rules
Cisco supports an open Internet and believes that the FCC should adopt balanced rules without imposing the draconian regulatory requirements known as Title II.
Heavy-handed regulation under Title II could significantly inhibit new investments in broadband networks and limit new innovation and business models.
Consumers should have access to all legal Internet content. But overly restrictive rules under Title II could limit consumer choice in new and innovative services such as telemedicine, distance learning, and emergency services. This would be a major mistake.
We urge FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler to continue down the path he originally outlined earlier this year, which Cisco strongly supported in a letter to the FCC.
