Speech: The Third Way: A Narrowly Tailored Broadband Framework

May 6, 2010, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT
Washington, D.C.

Julius Genachowski
Chairman
Federal Communications Commission
May 6, 2010

Many have asked about the FCC’s next steps in view of the recent decision in the Comcast case. I’ll describe here a path forward, which will begin with seeking public comment on a post-Comcast legal foundation for the FCC’s approach to broadband communications services.  The goal is to restore the broadly supported status quo consensus that existed prior to the court decision on the FCC’s role with respect to broadband Internet service.

This statement describes a framework to support policies that advance our global competitiveness and preserve the Internet as a powerful platform for innovation, free speech, and job creation. I remain open to all ideas on the best approach to achieve our country’s vital goals with respect to high-speed broadband for all Americans, and the Commission proceeding to follow will seek comment on multiple legal theories and invite new ideas.
