Ammori, law scholar, to FCC: What does future competition look like?
The FCC has made a big deal about how its national broadband plan seeks to increase competition in the often concentrated market for broadband service providers.
It's promised to bust open the television set top box, which is tightly controlled by cable, satellite and telecom providers, in order to allow consumers direct access to Internet content through their televisions. It's also recommended a policy that would allow small carriers to use the wireless networks of national providers, so their customers can get access to the Web anywhere in the country. But the agency didn't set any benchmarks for competition policy.
Below, Marvin Ammori, a professor of law and media/telecom expert at the University of Nebraska, asks FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski what he envisions the ISP market will look like in one decade.
