STAMFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The following statement may be attributed to Frontier Communications Chairman and CEO Maggie Wilderotter:
"Over the last four years, Frontier has invested more than $2.8 billion to provide broadband, voice, and video services to our customers. Our network delivers valued services across our 28 states and offers unfettered access to the Internet. Despite this private capital commitment, some 'net neutrality' instigators are urging regulators to adopt rules for the Internet based on an outdated and burdensome 20th century regulatory framework. The Internet, which has thrived under a light touch regulatory approach, will stagnate under a regime developed for monopoly common carrier providers.
"Frontier embraces the existing industry-supported framework for an open Internet and supports transparency because we believe a fully-informed customer is the best customer. We do not block or degrade customer access to content and we have no fast lanes. Yet we find that 'net neutrality' advocates are urging new rules and regulations that will drive up our costs, create uncertainty, deter investment and degrade the customer Internet experience. This is exactly the wrong approach for our country as we rely on innovation to create jobs and we face a challenging global economic environment."
