Podcast: Net neutrality at a legal crossroads

December 7, 2017 by NCC Staff

 

On December 14th, the Federal Communications Commission is scheduled to hold a vote on whether to repeal the Obama-era net neutrality rules. Supporters of net neutrality argue that repealing the rules will hurt consumers, allowing telecommunications companies to charge extra to access important parts of the Internet. Opponents of the net neutrality rules argue that they are a classic case of government overreach, stifling competition and innovation on the Internet.

Gus Hurwitz and Travis LeBlanc join National Constitution Center president and CEO Jeffrey Rosen for an engaging debate about this timely topic.

This show was engineered by David Stotz and produced by Ugonna Eze and Scott Bomboy. Research was provided by Lana Ulrich and Ugonna Eze.
