Showing Kevin Martin the Door

David Isenberg weighs in on FCC Chairman Kevin martin and why he should be shown the exit. Here is an excerpt:

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.
