Michael O’Rielly talked about issues affecting telecommunications policy in his first public speech as commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission FCC). Regarding the recent D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals decision on net neutrality in Verizon v. FCC (network neutrality), Mr. O’Riely said he believes the court was wrong, not because it said the FCC does not have authority to regulate Internet access services but because he believes that the FCC does not have authority under the Telecommunications Act section 706 to promote broadband. He said he worked on the act, and the notion that a conservative House led by Newt Gingrich would give the FCC some “secret authority” to regulate the Internet is incorrect. close
