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.
Gus Hurwitz, assistant professor at the University of Nebraska College of Law, testifies before the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee on online video.
The U.S. and Canada are two of the world's most robust and competitive wireless markets. Both countries have a variety of wireless networks, providers, products, and services.
While the Federal Communications Commission would seem to be plenty busy carrying out its statutory responsibilities with respect to spectrum and mergers, it has chosen to become embroiled in an extra-curricular affair of its own making, the "net neutrality" controversy. This kerfuffle dates back to philosophical meditations on regulation and innovation before the turn of the current century.
Critics of the Obama administration's decision to not renew its contract with ICANN say that it is giving away the Internet to foreigners. It’s an understandable concern, given the administration’s general approach to foreign policy. It just happens to be an exaggerated concern, given the actual power of ICANN.
Although it is often idealized as a technologically connected continent, Europe’s broadband system is actually highly fragmented and in great need of overall improvement. The European Union should simplify and reduce regulation of broadband providers, remove barriers to consolidation, and embrace a market-led, technology-neutral approach to broadband.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia delivered its decision yesterday in a case brought by Verizon against the Federal Communications Commission. In its ruling, the court vacated anti-discrimination and anti-blocking rules enforcing so-called "net neutrality," or the principle that all Internet traffic should be treated equally.
Join AEI’s Center for Internet, Communications, and Technology Policy for a Google Hangout discussion in which panelists will discuss the importance of this ruling, what it means for the Internet, and what is likely to happen next.
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.
