Rayburn House Office Building

With net neutrality rules from the Federal Communications Commission expected soon, ITIF gathers two teams of experts to argue the merits of proposed legal approaches. Advocating for classification of broadband providers as a Title II common carrier will be Michael Weinberg of Public Knowledge and Evan Engstrom of Engine Advocacy. Supporting reliance on Section 706 of the Communications Act will be Doug Brake of ITIF and Gregg Rothschild of Glover Park Group. In classic debate format, the two sides will reason out the advantages, disadvantages, and potential implications of the possible approaches and explore alternatives, all in the hopes of convincing you of their chosen path to protecting and promoting the open Internet.
