USIIA Rejects Legislative Approach to Network Neutrality

The US Internet Industry Association (USIIA) urged Congress to take no action on the issue of network neutrality, concluding legislative action "could substantially undermine investment in networks, stifle innovation on the Internet and harm consumers and business alike."

USIIA is a national trade association for Internet commerce, content and connectivity.

"Network neutrality continues to be nothing more than a solution in search of a problem," said David P. McClure, USIIA president and CEO. "In spite of intense media hype and speculation by advocates, there is no evidence that a problem does or will exist."
