Charter Communications Says Net Neutrality Will Slow Broadband Growth and Mean Higher Fees

Posted: Feb 27, 2015 12:37 am | Internet & Websites Press Releases | Stock Ticker: NASDAQ:CHTR

Charter Communications, Inc. today released the following statement regarding the FCC's adoption of open Internet rules.




"Charter supports net neutrality because our subscribers expect nothing less than a free and open Internet. This means that Charter does not block, slow down or prioritize Internet traffic. However, the rules adopted today will add fees to customer bills, create regulatory uncertainty and lead to years of litigation that, together, will slow the progress and development of faster broadband for our subscribers. Rather than operate within this outdated and overly broad regulatory regime, Charter looks forward to working with Congress to pass a new open Internet law that protects consumers, provides certainty for investors and freedom for innovators."
