Muris Comments on FTC Internet Task Force Report

Professor and former Federal Trade Commission Chairman Timothy Muris commented in TR Daily on an FTC Internet Task Force report urging caution in considering net neutrality policies.

"Net neutrality is a meaningless term, lacking a rationale or analytical basis to impose new regulations on the Internet. The FTC Report today reaffirms, that the broadband Internet access industry is moving in the direction of more, not less, competition, including fast growth, declining prices for higher-quality service, and the current market-leading technology (i.e., cable modem) losing share to the more recently deregulated major alternative (i.e., DSL)," said Muris.
