KINGSTON, Jamaica — The Opposition, People’s National Party (PNP) is affirming its commitment to fully support the principle and application of net neutrality in Jamaica.

The PNP’s affirmation comes in light of the ruling by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the United States to repeal the 2015 Net Neutrality Rules.

Opposition Spokesman on Science and Technology, Julian Robinson said net neutrality is an important principle in maintaining a free and open internet.

“Its application will ensure a level playfield, particularly for entrepreneurs and small businesses that depend on unimpeded access to the Internet to develop new products and services,” Robinson noted.

He added that as a small developing country, innovation is critical to our growth and development as net neutrality will foster equal access to the internet facilitating innovation.
