FCC Chief Genachowski On Net Neutrality: Trust Me
FCC chairman Julius Genachowski now finds himself caught between unfulfilled promises made to the tech community to keep the internet open, and a Republican Congress ready to portray any new rules on broadband ISPs as heavy-handed, economy-killing regulation.
Genachowski said Wednesday that the rules are coming. He didn’t say how — the $64,000 question — but only that the FCC is being slow in order to be careful. “That will happen,” Genachowski said, referring to so-called net neutrality rules designed to make sure that the telecoms that own the net’s pipes can’t control what goes through
