The incoming Federal Communications Commission Chairman and new Commissioner, along with the existing members, will need to take action on a host of major issues. The Commission will have to make decisions about net neutrality regardless of how the court rules, navigate competing interests in the upcoming spectrum auctions, and determine how to address competition, to name a few.

Former FCC Chairman Reed Hundt and Gregory Rosston, SIEPR Deputy Director and former FCC Deputy Chief Economist, recently released the paper "Articulating A Modern Approach to FCC Competition Policy," offering guidance to the FCC on some of these issues. Panelists at this event, including Reed Hundt and Jim Cicconi, AT&T Senior Executive Vice President of External and Legislative Affairs, will discuss the role of competition policy in FCC regulation and, more generally, how the new makeup of the FCC can move forward on issues that will lay the groundwork for the modern communications industry.
