Audio – FTC to take close look at Net neutrality next month
The U.S. Federal Trade Commission will take a closer look at Net neutrality and broadband access issues at a Feb. 13-14 workshop. Jeff Schmidt, director of the FTC’s Bureau of Competition, says the agency’s goal is to determine “how should you look at Net neutrality proposals” from a competitive standpoint. A Senate bill that would stop broadband carriers from discriminatory pricing for Internet content was introduced earlier this week.
Schmidt spoke at the Reuters Regulation Summit in Washington.
