"While we are still reviewing the text of the opinion, today's court decision does nothing to temper CTIA members' long-standing commitment to an open Internet and a vibrant wireless ecosystem because that's what wireless customers demand. In fact, the United States leads the world in mobile broadband specifically because investment and innovation have been driven by the needs of customers, not by regulations or court decisions. Policymakers should exercise caution before adding any additional regulation to this area, particularly given the fundamental technical and operational challenges facing mobile broadband providers and the robust competition to attract and retain customers."
