Hawai‘i Gov. David Ige released the following statement in response to yesterday’s net neutrality repeal vote by the Federal Communications Commission.

“My administration has long been and will continue to be a strong proponent of maintaining net neutrality, despite the Federal Communications Commission’s recent repeal of neutrality rules. We had the foresight to require neutrality in agreements with Internet Service Providers (ISPs).

“Attorney General Doug Chin and Office of Consumer Protection Director Stephen Levins have already started their strong opposition to the repeal, and I am committed to ensuring that all Hawai‘i residents have the benefit of an open platform of innovation, education and free expression. I will be working with stakeholders to protect the integrity of this critical resource.
