Brodsky on Kennard on Net Neutrality
Art Brodsky, of Public Knowledge, gives yet another perspective on Kennard's NYT Op-Ed. He writes:
As the chairman of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) during the Clinton Administration, Bill Kennard often tried to do the right thing in the face of daunting odds. That’s why it was tremendously disappointing to see him on the pages of the New York Times taking a swipe at Net Neutrality.Brodsky continues
. . . what makes Net Neutrality so important [is that] If network operators, including that $2 billion-a-quarter profit machine AT&T, can dictate the terms of the last mile to application and service providers, then affordable broadband will be rendered meaningless.Exactly. If you specify broadband without saying Internet . . . well, digital TV is the only non-Internet broadband service those innovative network operators have come up with so far.
