Two Good Reads on One Bad Rule

Thom Lambert —  15 July 2014

Today is the last day for public comment on the Federal Communications Commission’s latest net neutrality proposal.  Here are two excellent op-eds on the matter, one by former FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell and the other by Tom Hazlett and TOTM’s own Josh Wright.  Hopefully, the Commission will take to heart the pithy observation of one of my law school friends, Commissioner Ajit Pai:  “The Internet was free and open before the FCC adopted net neutrality rules. It remains free and open today. Net neutrality has always been a solution in search of a problem.”
