FCC Chair Trots Out Tired Telecom Trade Show Talk

from the broken-record dept

The Globalcomm telecommunications trade show is this week in Chicago, and as is apparently de rigeur at these events, FCC Chairman Kevin Martin’s been given a platform to repeat the same old lines that he’s said at similar previous events. Basically the gist is this: regulation is bad, okay, and companies — especially big telcos — shouldn’t be encumbered by any sort of rules so there’s a level playing field that encourages competition. Of course, all of this is double-speak. Martin loves regulation when it’s politically useful, his idea of a level playing field means one that’s slanted towards telcos and his idea of competition is a duopoly. He also remarked that the industry needs to deliver “more innovation” to consumers. Perhaps he should kick things off with some new thinking instead of rehashing these tired — and ultimately ineffective — ideas.
