The FCC's Wireless Competition Report: A Preview
George Mason University
May 18, 2011
4:30pm - 5:30pm
Every year since 1995, the Federal Communications Commission has released a report on the state of competition in the wireless market, and it will soon release the fifteenth. Last year's report was the first not to find the market "effectively competitive." As a result, expectations are high for the new annual report. How it determines the state of competition in the wireless market could affect regulatory policy and how the Commission looks at proposed mergers.
Join the Mercatus Center at George Mason University's Technology Policy Program for a discussion of these issues, including:
What does a proper analysis of wireless competition look like?
What should we expect from the FCC's report this year?
How should the FCC address competition in the future?
Panel will feature:
- Thomas W. Hazlett, Professor of Law & Economics, George Mason University School of Law
- Joshua D. Wright, Associate Professor of Law, George Mason University School of Law
- Robert M. Frieden, Professor of Telecommunications & Law, Penn State University
- Harold Feld, Legal Director, Public Knowledge
To RSVP for yourself and your guests, please contact Megan Gandee at 703-993-4967 or email@example.com no later than May 16, 2011. If you can't make it to the Mercatus Center, you can watch this discussion live online at mercatus.org.
