Internet Companies Weigh In on Net Neutrality

BBC News’ Technology division gathered the following statements on Net Neutrality from stakeholder companies:

The principle that all internet traffic should be treated equally was enshrined in US law in 2015.

But telecom companies complained an overly regulated net stifled innovation, particularly their ability to roll out broadband services. …

Facebook said: ‘We are disappointed that the proposal announced this week by the FCC fails to maintain the strong net neutrality protections that will ensure the internet remains open for everyone. …’

In its statement, Google said the current rules ‘are working well’.

Meanwhile, content giant Netflix tweeted: ‘This current draft order hasn’t been officially voted, so we’re lodging our opposition publicly and loudly now.’ …

In a blog post, ComCast’s chief diversity officer wrote: ‘Comcast has already made net neutrality promises to our customers, and we will continue to follow those standards, regardless of the regulations in place.’
