Genachowski’s moderate tone on net neutrality rules a good start

Posted December 1st, 2010 in FCC, indecency, Internet, net neutrality and tagged , , by Alton Drew

I found listening to Federal Communications Chairman Julius Genachowski’s moderate tone during today’s press conference encouraging. From what we know based on today’s press conference, a reclassification of broadband access as a Title II telecommunications service is off the table. By taking Title II off the table, the FCC increases the perception of its approach to net neutrality rules as middle of the road.

Proponents and opponents agree with the overall concept of an open network, and the Chairman acknowledged that the Internet is currently Open, which has enabled its success today. Openness, as I’ve argued time and time again, adds value to this digital engine of economic growth. The more consumers accessing the Internet and the World Wide Web for digital information, the better.

At the heart of this growth is an innovative, responsive, and daring private sector that relishes in bringing products to as many consumers as possible. Everyday this sector finds ways to make the Internet better and faster than it was before. Everyday, there is a network engineer or an application developer that is designing and building devices that can connect us to the Web and each other in both fun and productive ways. All this growth since that first web page in November 1990 without the burden of excessive regulation.

I hope Mr. Genachowski presents in December rules that effectively maintain the status quo. His rules should be more an acknowledgement and celebration of what the private sector has done in providing mankind an awesome tool for productivity, which he seemed to address in his speech today. His rules should be a reinforcement of existing consumer and privacy protections and not a recreation of the regulatory wheel.
