CQ welcomes Senator John Sununu, a member of both the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation as well as the Senate Republican High Tech Task Force. Senator Sununu posts the following statement on the issue of "net neutrality", a topic that has not received coverage at CQ.
Government’s role in supporting the development of emerging technologies is to get out of the way. Imposing unnecessary regulations on the Internet is a sure way to discourage investment, limiting the deployment of new products. The marketplace has powerful incentives for private industry to continue the development of existing technologies, while at the same time providing safeguards to protect consumers. Furthermore, the most recent version of the Commerce Committee’s legislation includes an ‘Internet Consumer Bill of Rights,’ along with authority for the FCC to adjudicate complaints against providers. These provisions will help ensure that Internet users have unfettered access without stifling technological innovations that benefit consumers.
How do CQ readers feel about the net neutrality issue? Let us know in the comments.
