ITIF Event: Preserving the Open Internet: Is a Consensus Emerging?

Rough consensus is emerging on many of the issues raised in the FCC’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on Preserving the Open Internet, particularly those relating to transparency and disclosure, network management, and the value of helping latency-sensitive applications such as gaming and voice applications such as Skype. A number of key players in the Open Internet – or net neutrality – debate have refined their positions in the last few months, but there is still disagreement about how far these regulations should go into the mobile networking space and their specific details.

Please join us for a round-table discussion among the leading players in the Open Internet debate as we search for consensus on the remaining questions.

Date: Tuesday, February 23, 2010
Time: 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM
