Description

Today, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai circulated to FCC Commissioners a draft order in the Restoring Internet Freedom proceeding. Acting FTC Chairman Maureen K. Ohlhausen provided the following statement:

I am pleased to see progress on this important matter. The FTC has long applied its competition and consumer protection expertise to network neutrality issues. The FTC also participated in the FCCs proceeding, and I am gratified that my comments and those of FTC staff appear to have been taken into consideration in the development of this order. I look forward to reading the full draft order. The FTC stands ready to protect broadband subscribers from anticompetitive, unfair, or deceptive acts and practices just as we protect consumers in the rest of the Internet ecosystem.

FCC Chairman Pai has announced that a draft of the order will be made public on Wednesday, Nov. 22, 2017. The FCC plans to vote on the report and order on December 14, 2017.
