Wed, 12/22/2010 - 5:42am
  WASHINGTON, /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In response to the FCC Open Meeting yesterday, CTIA-The Wireless Association President and CEO Steve Largent released the following statement:

  "While we agree with Commissioners McDowell and Baker that net neutrality rules are unnecessary, and we continue to maintain that net neutrality rules are particularly unnecessary for the wireless industry that continually innovates, competes and significantly invests in our nation, we recognize that the Chairman has attempted to bridge the differences among the various stakeholders. As we await the text of the Report and Order, we appreciate that the Commission's action today appears to recognize the important differences between fixed and mobile broadband. Whether it is the competition within the industry, the technical characteristics of the service or the distinct deregulatory framework adopted by Congress under which wireless currently operates, wireless is different."
