Speaker at Aspen Urges 'Broadband Bill of Rights'

Speaker at Aspen Urges 'Broadband Bill of Rights'

August 23, 2005

By Jeff Smith

The chief executive of the leading independent Internet telephony company on Monday urged the government to adopt a consumer "broadband bill of rights."

Jeffrey Citron, chief executive officer of Vonage Holdings Corp., said such formal policies are needed to ensure consumers have access to a minimum level of service, have a lawful right to connect to any Internet site and will be able to attach any device as long as it doesn't harm a network.

He was speaking on a panel at the Aspen Summit, a communications summit sponsored by the Progress & Freedom Foundation, a Washington, D.C., think tank.

Citron referred to efforts by a couple of small telcos, such as North Carolina-based Madison River Communications, to block Vonage calls or charge special fees.

In the case of Madison River, the Federal Communications Commission acted relatively quickly to intervene, but consumer groups fear this kind of problem could increasingly occur in the broadband, or high-speed Internet service, sphere. The Baby Bells and cable companies control most of the lines leading into homes, with companies such as Vonage relying on access.

But the FCC doesn't appear inclined to develop what are called net-neutrality regulations and instead allows the private industry to self-police.

Executives representing the cable industry and two regional Bell companies - Verizon and SBC - said they agreed with the general principles of a broadband bill of rights. But all three argued against implementing formal policies.

Peter Davidson, Verizon senior vice president of federal government relations, said Verizon wouldn't block access because it knows it's "good business" to allow its customers to go anywhere on the Internet they want to go. He also said Madison River is a good example of how the FCC can move quickly and that no regulatory policy can possibly anticipate all the scenarios that may emerge.

Kyle McSharrow, president and chief executive of the National Cable & Telecommunications Association, said he is "very leery" of putting "rules of the road" in place because of the possibility of them being leveraged by competitors to their advantage.

"Broadband deployment (in the U.S.) is doing very nicely," McSharrow said, adding there's no reason to panic.

Forrest Miller, group president of SBC Communications, argued that a self-policing market will work the best. He noted that SBC sells an Internet service with Yahoo! as a partner, but would be "stupid" if it blocked customers from going to the Google search engine if they prefer.

Bob Johnson, president of Consumers for Cable Choice, noted that the U.S. is only 16th in the world in broadband penetration and that the "system is broken."

Consumers for Cable Choice also has argued for access and service standards.

Said Citron of Vonage: "It's hard to advance (in broadband penetration) when there are only two players (the Bells with DSL and the cable industry with cable modem service). We need a third option."
