Preparing for the Next Round in Net Neutrality

This session will begin with a technical tutorial on the architecture of the Internet to provide a solid basis for a discussion about net neutrality — how edge providers send traffic to ISPs, how “peering,” “throttling,” and “fast lanes” work in the real world, and how the Internet can support services such as high-definition video streaming at scale. Our panel will then discuss the FCC’s controversial decision applying common-carrier regulation to the Internet, discuss how digital stakeholders from start-ups to massive infrastructure players will be impacted by the new FCC regulations, analyze the appeals and potential for Congressional action, and explore what’s at stake for all members of the Internet community.

Panelists:  Kurt Wimmer, Partner, Covington & Burling (Moderator); Jonathan Mayer, Cybersecurity Fellow, Center for International Security and Cooperation, Stanford University (Tutorial); Evan Engstrom, Policy Director, Engine; Dave Kumar, Partner, Goldberg, Godles, Wiener & Wright LLP; Berin Szoka, President, TechFreedom.
