U.S. Sen. Cory Booker Statement on Potential FCC Change to Internet Access Rules

(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) WASHINGTON, April 24 -- The office of Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., issued the following news release: U.S. Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) today issued the following statement responding to news reports that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is considering changing a rule to allow Internet service providers to adjust the speed of content delivery based on price, a change that could dramatically alter the online experience of many Americans.

"I am deeply concerned by reports that the FCC is preparing to reverse ground on so-called net neutrality rules, potentially creating a pay-to-play system for Internet content that would advantage the fortunate and imperil content access for millions. Equal access to the Internet has a powerful positive effect - on education, government, even entrepreneurship. We should not jeopardize those gains, as well as progress still to come, by undermining the democratizing power of the Internet. I will be following the development of the FCC's new rule proposal closely." TNS 30TacordaCheng-140425-4714164 30TacordaCheng (c) 2014 Targeted News Service
