FCC Chair Says Regulating Internet a 'Nonstarter'

The chairman of the Federal Communications Commission said that he intended to aggressively promote and protect competition in the telecommunications industry, including making sure that smaller mobile phone companies have a reasonable chance of buying public airwaves in auctions next year. The chairman, Tom Wheeler, also said that the FCC would continue to ensure that the Web remained fully open, allowing users “to access all lawful content” regardless of what company provides the Internet service.
