Top Economists tell FCC economic evidence shows no market failure or need for net neutrality regs

April 12, 2010

A wide swath of top communications economists have written to the FCC that they do not believe the economic evidence warrants the FCC’s proposed preemptive Open Internet regulations, and that the best approach to address the FCC’s potential concerns is a case by case approach.

  • This high-powered private economic analysis, on top of the DOJ’s rejection of the the FCC’s alleged market failure thesis, makes it increasingly difficult for the FCC to argue it has legitimate “reasons,” that are not arbitrary and capricious, to warrant either deeming broadband to be a regulated service or that the competitive broadband market must be regulated for openness in direct contravention of law, precedent and existing policy.
