STATEMENT BY ACTING A.G. UNDERWOOD ON NET NEUTRALITY ROLLBACK

Today, the FCC announced that the rollback of net neutrality will officially take effect on June 11th. Acting New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood released the following statement:

“A free and open internet is critical to New York, and to our democracy. The repeal of net neutrality would allow internet service providers to put their profits before the consumers they serve and control what we see, do, and say online.

This office has proudly led the suit to block this illegal rollback of net neutrality – and we certainly won’t stop now. We look forward to making our case in court.”

In February, New York – leading a coalition of 23 Attorneys General – filed suit to block the illegal rollback of net neutrality.
