WASHINGTON, DC – This morning, the U.S. House of Representatives passed, with bipartisan support, H.R. 2666, the No Rate Regulation of Broadband Internet Access Act, sending a strong message to the White House and FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler that broadband rates for Internet service providers (ISPs) should be kept free from government regulation.  Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-16), who authored and introduced the bill, released the following statement after final passage of H.R. 2666:

“Since its inception, the Internet has been free from rate regulation and has thrived under that model. Both Chairman Wheeler and President Obama assured Congress and the public that any regulations that were adopted under the open Internet order would refrain from allowing the federal government to regulate rates of broadband Internet access. H.R. 2666 codifies both the President’s and Chairman Wheelers’ past promises and will allow innovative companies to do what they do best: create new products and better services to benefit consumers.”
