Report: Genachowski Leaning Towards Leaving Broadband Services Deregulated
May 4, 2010 at 4:25 AM (PT)
Sources at the FCC are telling the WASHINGTON POST that Chairman JULIUS GENACHOWSKI wants to keep broadband services deregulated, leaving the present regulatory system for broadband in place while making some changes to avoid legal challenges to the Commission's authority.
Three sources told the POST that GENACHOWSKI has not made a final decision in the matter but is leaning towards the status quo.
The Commission has not yet formally responded to the federal court ruling that said the agency's attempt to sanction COMCAST for throttling BitTorrent traffic exceeded its authority, putting the Commission's ability to regulate "Net neutrality" into question.
