BOULDER, Colo.--FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said that the draft net neutrality proposal he circulated to commissioners last week will forgo sections of Title II of the Telecommunications Act that are a threat to network investment. In other words, "no rate regulation, no unbundling and no tariffs or new taxes," he said.
BOULDER, Colo.--Time Warner Cable Chairman and CEO Glenn Britt admitted that the cable industry hasn't done a great job of championing its accomplishments. Specifically, he said the industry has poorly communicated its role in delivering broadband to U.S. consumers.
AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson said he is not worried about continued inroads that are being made by over-the-top video providers. "If the world moves to the OTT video model, that doesn't keep me awake at night," he said. "Our money is made off the broadband product … The consumer who acquires video off our broadband is not a bad model for us."
