The Internet is critical to our economy and our future. Today, it enables anyone, anywhere, to connect, access content and share ideas. These attributes have been at the center of the Internet’s ability to catalyze innovation in numerous industries, create new employment opportunities and positive economic growth.

For this to carry on, consumers must continue to have access to any legal content and services they choose, and their traffic should not be subject to unreasonable discrimination by their broadband provider. They should also be able to attach their choice of devices to networks and have accurate information about their service plans.

Microsoft welcomes Chairman Wheeler’s action to address the Open Internet Order, and looks forward to engaging productively in the process.
