Statement from our CEO:
My company has provided internet services to the public since 1994. For the past 23 years I have built networks that served consumers and businesses, large and small, with the express goal of providing the benefits of an open internet to everyone I could reach. Today the FCC rolled back the network neutrality provisions that had been enacted over the past several years. Speaking as a small business owner, an internet evangelist, and open source software advocate I can say that today’s decision by the FCC only benefits the largest providers (Comcast, Verizon, etc.) and will pave the way for a less inclusive, less open, and less free internet and society in the future.
In her dissenting statement today, FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn asked the following question:
“Where will the next significant attack on internet freedom come from? Maybe from a broadband provider allowing its network to congest, making a high-traffic video provider ask what more can it pay to make the pain stop.”
I can promise that IsoFusion has always worked, and will continue to work to keep our network free from this type of interference. We continually work to find more and better ways to connect our customers to the content they want. The internet was designed to be free and open, not controlled by monopolistic gatekeepers.
However, it is not too late to continue to resist the efforts of the Comcast’s of the world. Call your congressional representatives and request that they pass the “Resolution of Disapproval” to overturn the FCC vote.
