WASHINGTON, September 20, 2010 - The Broadband Breakfast Club on Tuesday, September 21, will feature a discussion about the future of broadband, and how it is regulated. Among the panelists who will face off at the event, from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. at Clyde's of Gallery Place, are officials from Public Knowledge, the Phoenix Center, Georgetown University and the Computer and Communications Industry Association.
The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeal’s decision in Comcast v. FCC has opened the door to the appropriate manner by which broadband providers will be regulated. Is Title II once again in the future for information providers? Does Title I permit adequate safeguards for consumers, and for the government? And what of the ‘Third Way’? How well will it meet the needs of broadband providers and users?
