Open Internet Workshop: Consumers, Transparency and the Open Internet

The FCC announces a public workshop on the Open Internet (often referred to as "net neutrality") on Tuesday, January 19, 2009 at 1:30 p.m. The workshop will specifically focus on consumer choice and the level of transparency needed to optimize their online experience. Participants will also discuss what consumers know about broadband providers' network management practices and to what degree transparency of those practices may impact the internet experience for consumers, internet-based small businesses and other entities.

While we will webstream the event via www.openinternet.gov, we cordially invite Washington, DC-area residents to join us live at the FCC Commission Meeting Room, 445 12th Street, SW, Washington, DC for the event. The workshop will feature live comments and questions from the audience. We hope to see you there.
