Commissioner Gloria Tristaniís Statement on Open Access Notice of Inquiry

Washington, D.C. Ė

I requested that consideration of the Notice of Inquiry (NOI) on open access be delayed until the FCC completes its review of the Time Warner - AOL merger. With this adjudicatory matter pending involving open access, further analysis is appropriate prior to issuing an NOI. Nonetheless, I think it is high time to proceed with consideration of a national framework on this issue, and I look forward to acting on this expeditiously.
