FCC ruling supports net neutrality

Rich Hanley

Rich Hanley, associate professor and director of the graduate journalism program at Quinnipiac University, is available to discuss Thursday's Federal Communications Commission's ruling supporting net neutrality.

"The FCC ruling simply reflects a recognition that the Internet is a public good, a part of the everyday critical infrastructure on which contemporary life operates," Hanley said. "This means that the Internet will operate as it always has operated, as a neutral instrument carrying packets of data without regard to who created it or how much it costs to create it or even the purpose behind its creation. The telecommunications companies will adjust. They always do." 

If you're interested in speaking to Hanley, please call John Morgan, associate vice president for public relations, at 203-206-4449 (cell) or 203-582-5359 (office).
