PITTSBURGH, June 11, 2015 - American Cable Association President and CEO Matthew M. Polka issued the following statement regarding the decision today by a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit not to stay the Federal Communications Commission's decision to reclassify broadband access providers as telecommunications service providers:
"Although ACA is disappointed the Court did not grant the stay, we are pleased it granted expedited review of the FCC's decision. ACA looks forward to demonstrating to the Court why the FCC's decision to reclassify broadband Internet and regulate providers under Title II as common carriers harms consumers, competition, and broadband deployment."
