One thought on “FCC Net Neutrality hearing webcast – Apr 17

  1. The hearing is indeed archived. Note that one can right-click and select ‘play fast’ to zoom through testimony.

    An BBC news article summarizes the hearing thus:

    At the meeting the two Democrats who sit on the five-strong FCC board said it needed new powers to make sure net firms complied with net neutrality principles.

    But the two Republican commissioners on the board warned against over-burdening net firms with more rules.

    Summing up, FCC chairman Kevin Martin said its net policies were powerful enough but just needed to be properly enforced.

    He said there was nothing wrong with net firms managing traffic as long as they kept customers fully informed.

    “There must be adequate disclosures of the particular traffic management tools,” said Mr Martin. “Consumers must be fully informed of the exact nature of the service they are purchasing.”
