NCTA's Powell: Congress Should Settle Net Neutrality Debate
National Cable & Telecommunications Association president Michael Powell took to USA Today to make his case against Title II.
Powell's op-ed in the paper was paired with USA Today's editorial in support of FCC chairman Tom Wheeler's proposal for reclassification of Internet access service under the common-carrier regulatory regime.
The USA Today editorial board has concluded that Title II was the only way to avoid another court defeat of network-neutrality regs and that ISPs are uncompetitive companies that need the rules.
