STATEMENT OF COMMISSIONER MIGNON L. CLYBURN

ON OPEN INTERNET ANNOUNCEMENT

“I applaud Chairman Wheeler for announcing a path forward to ensure a free and open Internet.
The Commission must act expeditiously to adopt clear, enforceable rules that protect the
openness of the Internet while continuing to promote innovation and investment. I am also
pleased that the Chairman announced that the Commission will look for opportunities to enhance
broadband competition including examining restrictions on the ability of municipalities to offer
broadband -- restrictions that I have long advocated be eliminated. I look forward to working
with the Chairman on these important issues.”
