Attorney General Josh Stein Takes Action to Stop Illegal Net Neutrality Rollback

Release date: 1/16/2018

(RALEIGH) – Attorney General Josh Stein today took action to block the Federal Communication Commission’s illegal rollback of net neutrality.

“North Carolinians must have access to reliable internet to educate their children, run their businesses, engage with the world, and connect with family and friends,” said Attorney General Josh Stein. “The internet is the core infrastructure of the 21st century -- it must be open to all. That's why I oppose the FCC’s effort to abolish net neutrality and am taking this legal action to protect the people of North Carolina.”
