Net neutrality is crony capitalism pure and simple – an effort by one group of private interests to enrich itself at the expense of another group by using the power of the state.
Eisenach's testimony streeses thee main points: net neutrality regulation cannot be justified on grounds of enhancing consumer welfare; the potential costs of net neutrality regulation are sweeping and severe; and legitimate policy concerns about the potential use of market power can best be addressed through existing antitrust and consumer protection laws and regulations.
Two policy proposals on "net neutrality" have emerged: a light regulatory approach or subjecting ISPs and the rest of the Internet value chain to Title II of the Communications Act — meaning monopoly telephone era, utility style regulation.
Thank you for the opportunity to respond to your inquiry on an update of the Communications Act. Your latest inquiry asks the public to comment specifically on the question of peering and interconnection in communications markets, and on the role of government in regulating these agreements.
Verizon intends to manage traffic for the heaviest users of its unlimited mobile plan. The FCC is raising concerns, but Verizon explains that its actions are compliant with the FCC's definition of reasonable network management.
As the FCC makes its third attempt to develop a regulatory policy for the internet, it can either apply the principle of “permissionless innovation” or it can adopt Title II - a contrary rule that limited the pace of innovation in the telephone network.
Netflix is asking to get transit , like thousands of other Internet companies, pays third parties for transit. Now it wants to get the service for free through regulated price controls and a reclassification of broadband providers as common carriers.
The FCC’s net neutrality rules are based on the false premise that U.S. broadband services are sub-standard compared to other countries. In fact, the market is meeting consumer needs and outperforming every comparable market in the world.
European Union leaders are so desperate for re-election in May that they will sacrifice their very platform for the sake of net neutrality and free roaming, feel good palliatives that pander to voters.
Netflix CEO Reed Hastings doesn't like paying for Internet connectivity. For decades, content providers, websites, ISPs, and consumers have paid fees to connect to the next level of the network. Call it Internet access, or call it "transit" or "paid peering." But Hastings has a better idea. "Instead," Hastings demands "they must provide sufficient access to their network without charge."
