ROSEN: NET NEUTRALITY REPEAL WILL FORCE HARDWORKING NEVADANS TO PAY MORE FOR SLOWER INTERNET
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Today, Congresswoman Jacky Rosen (NV-03) released the following statement in response to the Federal Communications Commission's decision to repeal rules protecting net neutrality:
“Repealing net neutrality will allow internet service providers to stop or slow down connectivity and force Nevada families and small businesses to pay more for slower internet,” said Rosen. “Access to a free and open internet is critical to protecting consumers, and it’s vital for our startups, our schools, our hospitals, and our emergency call centers for first responders who should not have to pay more to use the internet. We must fight to reverse this misguided decision and return access to a free and open internet for Nevadans.”
