Statement by Assistant Secretary Michael D. Gallagher on the FCC's Adoption of Wireline Broadband Internet Access Order

"Today's FCC action demonstrates Chairman Martin's leadership and represents an important step towards realizing the President's goal of universal, affordable access to broadband for all Americans by creating a level playing field for providers of broadband access and by removing regulatory obstacles to further investment in broadband infrastructure. I congratulate Chairman Martin and his fellow Commissioners for their foresight and their willingness to work in a bipartisan fashion."
