The top Democrat on the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Communications and Technology is hosting a Google Hangout panel discussion Wednesday on proposed Federal Communications Commission rewrite of net neutrality rules.
Rep. Anna G. Eshoo will join three panelists: former FCC commissioner Robert McDowell, Matthew Prince, CEO and co-founder of CloudFare, and Stanford law professor Barbara van Schewick. The session will start at 6:30 pm Eastern.
The lawmaker’s office says questions can be submitted ahead of time via Twitter (to @RepAnnaEshoo using the hashtag #netneutrality) or through the event page. Eshoo’s stance on the FCC proposal is pretty clear: “Like many Internet users, I fear that the latest round of proposed net neutrality rules from the FCC will not do enough to curtail discrimination of Internet traffic, but rather leave the door open to discrimination under more ambiguous terms.”
