Net Neutrality – An Update

The Federal Communications Commission’s Network Neutrality rules became effective on June 12. Since then, contrary to the warnings of some opponents, the digital world has not stopped turning. On the other hand, while Net Neutrality supporters were jubilant, there has been little visible change for the good, either. That should not be surprising, since the most important impact of the new rules is in shaping future conduct. Even so, for those interested in preserving an open Internet, there are a number of developments worth noting.

That’s the sound of the (policy) police: The FCC and Sprint’s unlimited data plan debacle

Location:
American Enterprise Institute (AEI), 1150 Seventeenth Street, Washington, DC, 20036, United States
Recommendation:
1

Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure had a stressful week. Following a botched announcement of Sprint’s new all-in mobile data plan – and the backlash that ensued – the company made an abrupt 180, dropping a policy that many consumers found to be misleading. It was a great example of how competition should play out: firms competing to offer consumers better options and calling each other out when they behave badly, without any need for regulators to get involved. But as bad as the week was for Claure, it should be seen as worse for the Federal Communications Commission, whose network neutrality rules likely drove Sprint to offer its consumer-unfriendly plan in the first place.
