Information Technology Industry Council President and CEO Dean Garfield put out a progress report August 31 on his group's efforts to find some middle ground among the stakeholders battling over the issue of network neutrality, saying there has been "significant progress" while declining to provide any details.
"As we work to reach final consensus, we're focused on solidifying what unites us, incorporating new ideas and viewpoints, and, above all, delivering a series of constructive, pro-consumer and innovation-based principles that will only strengthen the Internet as we know it today," Garfield said in a statement. "Past precedent shows that when we work together and integrate the best ideas in a coordinated fashion, the stronger the outcome." Garfield's group represents major tech firms such as Apple, IBM, Intel and Microsoft.
