FTC and FCC Sign MOU on Continued Cooperation Following Restoration of Net Neutrality

  • The FTC and FCC have signed the Safeguarding and Securing the Open Internet FCC-FTC Memorandum of Understanding, reiterating the agencies’ ongoing cooperation on consumer protection matters following the FCC’s decision last week to restore net neutrality by reclassifying broadband service as a Title II telecommunications service.
  • The MOU details how the two agencies will coordinate consumer protection efforts, share information, and recognize expertise in their respective jurisdictions.
  • The FCC also recently entered into MOUs with the AGs of Connecticut, Illinois, New York, and Pennsylvania to share expertise and resources to enforce federal and state privacy laws and regulations.
