Washington – The Computer & Communications Industry Association, Internet Association and the Internet Infrastructure Coalition (i2Coalition) issued the following statement today on the National Telecommunications & Information Administration (NTIA) report on the ICANN transition proposals:

“The internet economy applauds NTIA for its deliberative and thorough work reviewing the ICANN transition proposals to ensure its principles for a successful transition are met.  Our organizations agree that the proposals to transition ICANN from U.S. government stewardship to a bottom-up, multistakeholder model satisfy NTIA principles and provide the internet with the best path forward for self governance.  It is important that Congress not artificially slow down the transition beyond the September 30 expiration of the current IANA contract.  We will remain engaged and vigilant as the transition proceeds to ensure the continued success of the multistakeholder model.”
