Martin’s appointment to a second term as FCC Commissioner is pending Senate confirmation. I like Kevin; he’s personable, he’s articulate, he understands the issues in deep detail. But he shouldn’t be confirmed.
Martin has not championed the Internet or its future; he seems intent on strengthening the old telco business model. Under his leader chairmanship, U.S. Internet connectivity has fallen ever further behind the rest of the world. U.S. citizens pay more for less Internet connectivity than most developed nations.
