FCC To Host Net Neutrality Round Tables

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will host four “Open Internet Round Tables” to discuss a number of topics that relate to net neutrality, according to TechCrunch.

The six sessions start with basic questions regarding the brass tacks of net neutrality itself, moving into the more technical aspects of the idea. The economics of broadband, a related topic, will also be discussed. According to the FCC, the sessions will help it “further develop” its “understanding of the issues” at hand.

Here’s the schedule:
  • September 16 (morning): Policy Approaches to Ensure an Open Internet
  • September 16 (afternoon): Mobile Broadband and the Open Internet
  • September 19 (morning): Effective Enforcement of Open Internet Requirements
  • September 19 (afternoon):  Technological Aspects of an Open Internet
  • October 2: Economics of Broadband: Market Successes and Market Failures
  • October 7: Internet Openness and the Law
The sessions will be live-streamed.
