Video: Free Press policy chief responds to former FCC Chairman Powell
Ben Scott, the policy director of Free Press, responds to a Q&A with former FCC chairman Michael K. Powell, former FCC chairman. In this interview, Scott disagrees on many points with Powell. First of all, he says that converting oversight of broadband services to the model used for other telecommunications services would not be as hard as it seems. It's not about regulating the Internet, he says. Rather, it's about regulating the fixed wires that provide access to the Web. Above all, Scott worries that without reclassifying broadband, the agency won't be able to accomplish its biggest objective: bringing affordable high-speed Internet access to all Americans within a decade.
