Marc Martin was quoted in the USA Today article, “Net neutrality: Did the FCC just take the Internet back to 2014?,” regarding the FCC's vote to scrap the net neutrality regulations meant to prevent anti-competitive behavior by internet service providers.

But the FCC has basically relinquished any authority to regulate ISP behavior, said Marc Martin.

ISPs have said voluntarily that "they do not want to engage in unreasonable and discriminatory practices. They don’t want to block web sites, they don’t want to throttle … and maybe they won't do anything going forward," Martin said.

However, Martin said, "if there is a rogue actor out there that does do something, there is not going to be a remedy. That’s the problem."
