PITTSBURGH, February 11, 2015 - American Cable Association President and CEO Matthew M. Polka issued the following statement in support of more than three dozen municipal broadband Internet service providers that want the FCC to provide relief for smaller ISPs from the unnecessary burdens of Title II regulation:
"ACA applauds the 43
municipal broadband Internet providers that are also ACA members for speaking
out about the harms of Title II reclassification for smaller ISPs. ACA agrees with their clear message that the
