Former FCC Head: Internet Doesn't Need Heavier Regulations

Says the ruling striking down FCC net neutrality policy is not a big deal


"Americans deserve an open Internet: They had it before the D.C. Court decision, and they will continue to enjoy it now," National Cable & Telecommunications Association President Michael Powell said in an op ed Friday (Jan. 17) in USA Today.

That decision was the Jan. 14 decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District Columbia vacating the major portions of the FCC's 2010 Open Internet order.
