Abstract

We discuss several FCC proceedings and other matters of economic interest. These include: the Commission’s new Open Internet (“net neutrality”) rules and economic challenges they pose; regulatory implications of a potential reclassification of certain online video distributors as multi-channel video distributors; the proposed Comcast-Time Warner Cable merger; a set of policy experiments that involve extension of the “Lifeline” universal service program to broadband, and the IP technology transition; and, finally, two major policy initiatives to improve the management of spectrum used by mobile wireless providers.
