CTIA Seeks Stay of FCC’s Internet Regulations

Today, CTIA-The Wireless Association® sought a partial stay of the FCC’s Open Internet regulations. After filing the stay request, I said: “We are very confident the courts will ultimately reject the FCC’s abandonment of its highly successful bipartisan regulatory approach for mobile broadband. Today, with our stay petition, we are asking that the status quo be […]

CTIA Filed Lawsuit to Challenge FCC Open Internet Order

CTIA filed a lawsuit with the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals today challenging the FCC’s decision to impose sweeping new net neutrality rules and reclassifying mobile broadband as a common carrier utility. CTIA Chairman of the Board and CEO of Bluegrass Cellular Ron Smith said: “With today’s filing, CTIA seeks to protect the competitive mobile […]

Setting the Record Straight: Auctions and Net Neutrality

Last week, we showed the fallacy of the FCC’s argument that the mobile voice “case study” proves that Title II regulation won’t harm wireless investment. Unfortunately, that was not the only errant investment-related claim in the Open Internet Order. In an all-too-perfect illustration that “correlation does not imply causation,” the Commission argued that the bidding […]

A Regulatory See-Saw Out of Balance: The FCC’s Blind Eye to Effective Competition in Wireless

Since the FCC’s release of the FCC Open Internet order a few weeks ago, we have posted a series of blogs documenting the many legal, logical and procedural shortcomings that afflict the Commission’s handiwork. From a historical perspective, the most striking aspect of the Order may be how it flies in the face of decades […]

The Open Internet Order’s Authority Grab: Congress Calls the Tune, Not the FCC

Last week, we looked at the false equivalence the FCC engaged in with its mobile voice case study, and disproved the agency’s claims that wireless investment won’t suffer under its Open Internet Order. We now examine how the FCC usurped the policy-setting role of Congress by unilaterally upending the system for regulating mobile services. Despite […]

Mobile Voice: The FCC’s Investment Sleight of Hand

Earlier this week, we pointed out how the FCC’s use of the mobile voice “case study” for regulating wireless broadband incorrectly assumes that the investment undertaken by wireless carriers in their wireless voice services is evidence that heavy-handed Title II regulation will spark the same investment for mobile broadband. Let’s dig a little deeper into […]

Mobile Voice and Broadband Regulatory Parity: What’s Good for the Goose Isn’t Good for the Gander

This week we are continuing our series of blog posts identifying the array of legal, factual, and historical leaps that the FCC had to make in order to impose 1930’s-style common carrier regulation on what has been – until now – the vibrant competitive wireless broadband marketplace of the 21st century. We will review the […]

CTIA Statement on the Broadband Opportunity Council

Following President Obama’s announcement of the Broadband Opportunity Council, I said:  “Today, President Obama acknowledged that 98 percent of Americans have access to 4G/LTE service, further confirmation that Americans benefit from a dynamically competitive wireless industry that continuously provides consumers with faster network speeds, more coverage and more capacity. We fully support the White House’s laudable […]
