A critical milestone in the Internet’s history and evolution is approaching. On October 1st, the final stage in privatization of the Internet should be complete. The first stages of privatization in the 1990s brought about exponential growth of the Internet – growth that propelled Moore’s Law and breakthrough innovations in computing power. Because of these phenomena, American industry has lead the world in technological transformation and innovation.
This final stage of Internet privatization will help ensure that future American innovations benefit from a global, stable and interoperable Internet infrastructure. American business relies on these principles and the growth they have provided. For these reasons, Intel strongly supports the IANA transition. We were deeply engaged in the development of the transition proposal and fully support implementing it on time, at the end of this month.
