STATEMENT FROM FCC CHAIRMAN JULIUS GENACHOWSKI ON T-MOBILE

WITHDRAWING THEIR CHALLENCE TO FCC’S OPEN INTERNET RULES

“The FCC’s widely supported open Internet framework has contributed to healthy growth in innovation
and investment across the U.S. broadband economy. Since 2010, our strong and balanced rules have been
protecting entrepreneurs and consumers, and have increased certainty and predictability for investors in
Internet services as well as networks. The ongoing litigation – now pursued by a single company – only
serves to reduce that certainty and predictability. I applaud T-Mobile’s decision to withdraw from this
litigation.”
