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.
In mid-September, AEI’s Center for Internet, Communications, and Technology Policy and the University of Nebraska College of Law will cosponsor a three-day conference at the Federal Communications Commission to highlight the latest academic thinking on broadband regulation and to give regulators the opportunity to interact with leading scholars in the field.
Net neutrality advocates in the U.S. are only giving you part of the picture, and making the future look far more grim than it really is. We should call "Internet Slow Down Day" "Internet Reality Check Day" instead.
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.
Because there is almost not evidence that actual content blocking, support for Title II is based on the purely theoretical notion that such laws are needed to prevent broadband providers from doing so, not on reality.
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.
Groundbreaking mobile health applications have the potential to reduce health care costs and minimize human error. But US government agencies are not clearly defining what applications should be regulated, who should be regulating them, and how their regulation will be enforced, deterring investors and delaying the applications’ introduction to the market.
Please join AEI’s Center for Internet, Communications, and Technology Policy for a conference to address key steps we can take, as members of the global community, to maintain a free Internet.
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.
We welcome you to join us as a panel of economists discuss US wage and price prospects in the coming months and the implications for the Federal Reserve’s current unorthodox monetary policy.
