FCC Vote to Restore Net Neutrality Will Provide Critical Protections for Older Adults Online

WASHINGTON—Today, AARP Executive Vice President and Chief Advocacy & Engagement Officer Nancy LeaMond issued the following statement in response to the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) vote to restore net neutrality rules:

“Everyone in America should have access to a fast, fair, and open internet to get conduct work, buy goods, access health care and stay connected to family and friends. That’s why AARP supports the FCC’s decision to reinstate net neutrality. The rule will protect consumers online, helping to prevent online fraud and scams while safeguarding privacy and access to content.

“Net neutrality means anyone in America can access the content of their choosing without experiencing slowdowns in internet service and receive reliable service in times of emergency or natural disaster.”
