FCC Proposal to Regulate the Internet Would Harm Consumers, Stifle Innovation

  Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski’s suggested “third way” of internet oversight tries to find a middle ground where there is none.  Rather than a path between the free market and regulation, this approach opens the door to federal regulation of the internet to address problems that have yet to emerge.

FreedomWorks Foundation Praises Court Decision Rejecting FCC Regulation of Internet Services

Today, the U.S. District Court of Appeals ruled against an enforcement action by the Federal Communications Commission against Comcast’s network management practices.  The decision provides an important check on the FCC’s regulatory authority and may limit its ability to impose significant new regulations on the internet to promote “net neutrality.”  Specifically, the court questioned the FCC’s assertion that it had the authority to regulate the network management practices of internet providers.

FCC Misguided on Net Neutrality

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced today that it will revive the debate over net neutrality and issue new regulations concerning network management. The new regulations will be designed to prevent content discrimination and maintain network management transparency with the ultimate goal to “safeguard the free and open internet,” according to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski.  The announcement emphasized the importance of the internet in innovation and investment as well as the role it plays in entrepreneurship.

Assessing Broadband in America

In the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act passed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama earlier this year, a provision was made for a “national broadband deployment strategy” to increase the penetration of high speed internet throughout the country.  To explore their options, the FCC has begun a review of the current broadband policies.  Many have used comparisons between the United States and other nations as a reference for new broadband polices.  Not surprisingly, these advocates suggest that to remain in international competition, a greater degree of government intervention is required; however, upon further analysis, America has one of the strongest bases of independent internet stability worldwide.  The FCC would be wise to avoid aggressive new regulatory policies toward broadband deployment.
