Match Group CEO Releases Statement on Net Neutrality
The internet, and the mobile apps that utilize the internet, have transformed the way people connect, meet and get to know their significant others. With one out of every three dates, relationships, and marriages beginning with a dating product, Americans have truly embraced online dating for the myriad of benefits that it offers, including expanded options, efficiency, convenience, and increased control. Choice, convenience, and efficiency are the backbone of net neutrality, the guiding principle of the internet, and provide the ability for more people to connect online than ever before. Match Group stands in solidarity with hundreds of other companies and millions of consumers supporting robust and enforceable net neutrality rules. Net neutrality ensures our consumers continue to have the freedom to find that special someone by making sure that users won’t be shut off or slowed down when using our services. It also ensures continued innovation in the dating space for new products and services to be offered, regardless of the size and resources of the companies that come up with the ideas. We are proud to work with the Internet Association and others to support net neutrality.
