Mid Century Statement on Net Neutrality Repeal

December 15, 2017… Yesterday, the FCC repealed the 2015 Open Internet Order known as Net Neutrality.  This 3-2 vote was not surprising.  We have been asked several times in recent weeks, “How will this change things for Mid Century and its subscribers?’  The answer to that is simple; nothing will change.

We believed in the Net Neutrality principles before Net Neutrality even existed.  The 3 core principles of net neutrality are no blocking, no throttling, and no paid prioritization.  In our extensive history as an Internet service provider, Mid Century has never done any of those things, and repeal of the Open Internet Order will not change that.  Our subscribers can rest assured that their experience with us will remain the same: an open and neutral connection to the Internet.

Thank you,

Mid Century
