McSlarrow Calls for Change in Regulatory Policy

McSlarrow Offers Vision for Competitive Policy to Govern the Communications Marketplace

NCTA President & CEO Kyle McSlarrow today suggested that the regulatory framework that governs today's communications marketplace is ready for fundamental reform that better reflects the presence of intense competition and innovation that are providing consumers with an ever increasing array of interactive services. McSlarrow delivered keynote remarks to the Washington-based Media Institute.

Titled, "Competition Policy and the Communications Marketplace," McSlarrow said that shifting the presumption of regulation to one where the federal government would only intervene if it determines that marketplace competition was not adequately protecting consumers, thereby trusting markets to best serve consumers, was central to real reform of the current regulatory system.
