History Will Judge the FCC’s Regulation of the Internet as the FCC’s Biggest Mistake Ever

The FCC’s Order is Unlawful, Unconstitutional, Unwarranted, Unnecessary & Unworkable

WASHINGTON D.C. – The following may be attributed to Scott Cleland, Chairman of NetCompetition:

  • "History will not be kind to the FCC for unnecessarily forcing the most antiquated regulation onto the most modern part of the economy.”
  • “This partisan FCC now politically owns this fiasco. It imagines itself the Internet’s solution, but has become its highest profile problem.
  • “The evidence and the courts will prove the FCC’s Order unlawful, unconstitutional and unwarranted, while Congress and public opinion will prove the FCC’s order an unnecessary and unworkable digital disaster over time.”
  • "The FCC should begin working with Congress immediately to quickly resolve this unnecessary and destructive controversy with a lasting, legitimate, bipartisan, and constitutional solution.” is a pro-competition e-forum representing broadband interests.  See
