Charlotte Talks: Net Neutrality

This morning, I had the pleasure of joining Mike Collins on Charlotte Talks to discuss the role of the presidency in the debate over net neutrality.  Here’s what WFAE had to say about the conversation:

The Affordable Care Act isn’t the only signature policy of the Obama era that’s facing an uncertain future.

President Trump’s new Federal Communications Commission chairman, Ajit Pai, is planning to roll back net neutrality regulations meant to guarantee open, equal access to the Internet.

Consumer groups say the rules are needed to keep service providers from blocking content and slowing web traffic, but Pai argues the policies hinder growth.

The debate could be headed to the U.S. Supreme Court after an appeals court ruling this week upholding the net neutrality regulations.

Washington Post technology reporter Brian Fung and Queens University of Charlotte’s John McArthur talk with Mike Collins about the possible policy changes that could shape the future of the Web.
