Mallinson: Net neutrality supporters are playing with fire

Keith MallinsonInvestors need clarity and stability in regulatory environments to be able to freely pursue the business models and pricing regimes needed to continue innovating, argues analyst Keith Mallinson. Net neutrality proponents could create more trouble in the market than is needed, he says. Uncertainty about how net neutrality rules will be implemented is rising on both sides of the Atlantic, both from Neelie Kroes, the European Commissioner for the Digital Agenda, and the FCC. Mobile networks will be hurt the most by net neutrality, since it is both unnecessary from a competitive standpoint and wireless capacity is inherently so constrained. Commentary
