FSF's Randolph May and Common Cause's Michael Copps Debate Net Neutrality

On October 9th, I had the pleasure of participating in a session with former FCC Commissioner Michael Copps at the 2014 Akamai Edge Conference in Miami, Florida, to discuss the hot topic of net neutrality and the FCC’s Open Internet proceeding. Many thanks to Akamai for inviting me to speak at the conference. And thanks too to Michael Copps for engaging in what, by all accounts, was an informative and lively program. Akamai’s innovative products and services have played a significant positive role in fostering the steady growth of the Internet ecosystem across the globe – and the conference’s sessions offered many opportunities to glimpse the prospects for continued exciting advancements. 

To watch the video of the net neutrality discussion, which is posted on Akamai’s website, please click here. In light of the FCC’s consideration of proposals to adopt new net neutrality regulations, the subject obviously is very timely.
