The following statement may be attributed to AT&T’s Executive Vice President-Federal Relations Tim McKone: 

“We congratulate Committee Chairman Upton and Subcommittee Chairman Walden for their leadership in crafting this important, common-sense effort to reform current FCC practices, many of which predate the agency’s current leadership.  Passage by the House is a needed step forward, and is also an important signal of support for modernizing telecom regulation.  It has become increasingly clear that, for America to have the world-class broadband infrastructure it needs, all of us must rethink outmoded regulations and outdated mindsets.  The US broadband industry is today investing and innovating at Internet speed.  The legislation passed today by the House challenges the FCC to keep pace.”
