For Immediate Release Common Cause Welcomes Sprint's Embrace of Open Internet

Statement by Michael Copps, Special Adviser to Common Cause's Media and Democracy Reform Initiative, On Sprint's Announcement Green-lighting Strong Open Internet Protections

Posted on January 16, 2015

Thanks to Sprint for sprinting ahead on the Open Internet, acknowledging what we have long known: strong net neutrality is good for consumers, competition, innovation and free expression online. Sprint’s competitors could learn a thing a thing or two from its corporate leadership. This is more evidence that it is time for the FCC to act on Title II reclassification.

Common Cause is a nonpartisan grassroots organization dedicated to upholding the core values of American democracy. We work to create open, honest, and accountable government that serves the public interest; promote equal rights, opportunity, and representation for all; and empower all people to make their voices heard in the political process.
