The Internet Association (AI) on Wednesday sent a letter to FCC to Chairman Ajit Pai calling for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to delay or vote against the draft Restoring Internet Freedom Order.

According to the association, whose more than 40 members include companies like Google and Amazon, “the draft ‘Restoring Internet Freedom Order’ under consideration by the FCC undoes decades of bipartisan agreement on net neutrality principles and ends net neutrality as we know it.”

The organization also stated that the draft Order “ignores the wishes of tens of millions of Americans who, like us, have voiced their support for the 2015 Open Internet Order.”

The AI stated its support for the 2015 Open Internet Order which it said “enshrined bright-line net neutrality rules that ban paid prioritization, blocking, throttling, and apply equally to mobile internet connections.”

According to the Internet Association, its members will continue the fight to preserve the 2015 Order and its “strong, enforceable net neutrality protections.”
