US net neutrality may drift from Western consensus

Tuesday, May 2, 2017

Significance

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai released a tentative agenda for the May consultations on April 27.

Impacts

  • The United States could attempt to export its new approach by supporting US ISPs with a market presence in other countries.
  • The US example will also be deployed by local ISPs seeking to frame net neutrality as a constraint on their competitiveness.
  • The debate could play to the disadvantage of Republicans if Democrats tie it to a broader theme of conservatives undercutting consumers.
