Reports: FCC Meets with Telecom Lobbyists

The Wall Street Journal reported that senior staff at the FCC has held closed-door meetings on Net Neutrality with lobbyists representing the largest telecom operators as well as Google, Skype and others.

  • Earlier this month, the FCC voted 3-to-2 to open a new proceeding to identify the legal approach it should follow in regulating broadband. Specifically, the Notice of Inquiry called for public input to the challenge created by the Comcast court case. Options include pursuing a Title I regulatory path, a full Title II path, and a middle-ground solution -- the Third Way approach proposed by FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski.
