The following statement is attributable to Troy A. Miller, NRB President & CEO:

“We are disappointed by the FCC’s vote to reinstate net neutrality rules. This move constitutes a drastic and excessive expansion of federal regulatory reach, while failing to address real threats of viewpoint discrimination by edge providers.

“‘Open internet’ protocols have no meaningful benefits for free speech and access to information. They have little to do with the relationship between internet service providers (ISP) and consumers, but they do give Big Tech behemoths an advantage over ISPs and harm innovation and investment in a competitive U.S. industry.

“We believe that the value of a prudent and restrained regulatory approach does not change from administration to administration and disapprove of the FCC’s actions today.”

Free North Korea Radio (FNKR) is leading a transformative mission to bring the gospel and the hope of Jesus to the enslaved people of North Korea through radio broadcast.

Every morning and evening for two hours, broadcasts pierce through the veil of censorship, reaching the isolated corners of North Korea with messages of faith and redemption from defectors, songs of praise, and more. These broadcasts, carefully tailored for the North Korean audience, offer a lifeline of spiritual nourishment in a land where their leaders have made themselves out to be gods.

Please pray for these brave broadcasters in North Korea.
