As part of IFTA's Net Neutrality filing and comments Jean Prewitt, President and CEO stated,"IFTA's message is the same as in the Commission's 2010 proceeding on this issue: The FCC must pursue the most effective regulatory path to ensure that broadband providers' control over the Internet cannot be translated into market barriers preventing independent content producers and service and application providers from reaching the American public. Only with those protections in place can we be confident that the Internet will remain open."
