PCIA Statement on FCC’s Open Internet Order

February 26, 2015 / Alexandria, VA – PCIA – The Wireless Infrastructure Association released the following statement in response to the Federal Communications Commission’s Open Internet Order:

PCIA – The Wireless Infrastructure Association is eager to review the FCC’s Report and Order on Remand, Declaratory Ruling and Order for the Open Internet (Open Internet Order), narrowly approved this morning by a party line 3-2 vote. As the association that represents the companies that build and manage our nation’s wireless networks, we have been following the proceedings closely.

PCIA is deeply concerned about the impact of the Open Internet Order on investment, capital expenditures and the deployment of wireless infrastructure, and we are reviewing it from that perspective. America’s wireless networks are a model for the rest of the world because they were built on innovation, private investment, and a regulatory regime that encourages rapid deployment. PCIA is interested in bipartisan solutions, and is closely following developments in Congress that might yield results that protect an open internet while promoting investments in wireless networks.
