Re: In the Matter of Preserving the Open Internet, GN Docket No. 09-191
Dear Ms. Dortch:
On December 7, 2010, Melissa Newman met with Margaret McCarthy, Legal Advisor to
Commissioner Michael Copps, to discuss the above-captioned proceeding.
Qwest reiterated its position that net neutrality rules are not needed at this time as there has
been no evidence of any market failure. Qwest also believes that any net neutrality rules
must be competitively neutral and is concerned about disparate treatment between wireless
and wireline services.
This ex parte is being filed electronically pursuant to 47 C.F.R. §§ 1.49(f) and 1.1206(b).
Please contact me at 202.429.3120 if you have any questions.
/s/ Melissa E. Newman
