2005 PURC Telecom Policy Roundtable: Who Should Regulate Telecommunications? Markets, Regulators or Antitrust
October 19, 2005
What's broken and what works in telecommunications today? What role, if any, should utility commissions play in supervising telecommunications? Which issues are priorities for Florida? To advance a dialogue on this adaptive work, PURC convened a communications policy roundtable "Who Should Regulate Telecommunications -Markets, Regulators, or Antitrust?" October 19, 2005, at the offices of the Florida Public Service Commission. About 100 participants, representing state and local government, business, academia, and consumers, heard speakers present their views on what is broken and what works in today’s telecommunications industry and regulation. The participants and speakers also engaged in breakout discussions to examine alternative visions of the future of telecommunications and what these different views mean for government policy.
