NCTA tells FCC to go easy on Internet regulation

The NCTA has asked the FCC to "adopt the narrowest possible definition of 'managed services'" when considering any sort of Internet regulation, according to a copy of the organization's reply comments on the FCC's open Internet proceeding obtained by FierceCable. "The Commission should expressly state that ISPs acting in good faith to manage their networks will be given the flexibility to do so and will not be subject to government second guessing," the reply said.

Elsewhere, in what should be good news for broadcasters considering the speed at which government bureaucracy moves, the FCC has created an intra-agency spectrum task force to figure how to reclaim spectrum for wireless broadband--especially how it can in the next five years get its hands on 120 MHz of spectrum the broadcasters hold.
