New NYU IPI Net Neutrality Report

Inimai M. Chettiar and J. Scott Holladay of the Institute for Policy Integrity at New York University School of Law have published a new report “Free to Invest – The Economic Benefits of Preserving Net Neutrality

This Report discusses some of the central questions that are raised by the FCC’s proposed net neutrality rules and finds that, on balance, maintaining the current pricing scheme is likely to be economically justified. While opponents of net neutrality are correct that it may have some downsides – including decreased investment incentives for ISPs and potential impacts on technological development -the government has tools at its disposal to mitigate these downsides. Moreover, the benefits of net neutrality, especially maintaining investment incentives for the development of new content, are very high.
