CTIA: Net neutrality risky for broadband investment

The wireless industry isn't a fan of the proposed net neutrality regulations under consideration at the FCC. CTIA says the rules will deter investment in broadband networks--the same broadband networks that the FCC and Congress hope will soon be expanded to reach unserved areas.

In its comments to the FCC, CTIA says there is no reason to justify net neutrality rules. "It would be unlawful and unwise for the Commission to change course by adopting prescriptive rules based on speculative predictions of consumer harm," the group said in its filing.

I sat down with Chris Guttman-McCabe, vice president of regulatory affairs at CTIA, to talk about the issue.
