FCC Chairman Calls Broadband Approach "Narrow and Tailored"

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski told a skeptical audience of cable executives he is pursuing a "narrow and tailored" approach to regulating broadband networks to promote adoption, competition and innovation. At a cable industry conference, Mr. Genachowski said his recent decision to push a weightier regulatory framework toward broadband was a reaction to a recent federal appeals court decision that damaged "the legal foundation underneath" the commission's long-stated policy objectives.
