"For the first time since 2010, Google came out staunchly for a free and open internet in a message that encouraged people to “take action” on Wednesday.

The company last took a strong stance on net neutrality in a blog post Eric Schmidt wrote in 2010. Despite the company’s reluctance to explicitly state its stance independently since then, the company wrote that its “values remain the same.” From the statement:
