35 sec read

Mark your calendars: May 20 should provide fireworks. On that date, Tom Wheeler, current chairman of the Federal Communications Commission FCC will sit down in front of the House Commerce Subcommittee on Communications and testify. And yes, net neutrality will come up. The issue of net neutrality has had a rollicking year, dying in January and only now potentially coming back to life. 

Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Tom Wheeler will testify in front of the House Commerce Subcommittee on Communications on May 20, the committee announced Monday. On the list of topics Wheeler will discuss with subcommittee members is Wheeler’s recent attempts to limit collusion between television broadcasters, revive the Obama administration’s net neutrality rules and lay the groundwork for the 2015 airwave auction, according to the committee. The week prior to the hearing, Wheeler’s agency will hold its monthly meeting, where the commissioners will vote on highly-anticipated and controversial issues, including Wheeler’s plans for the airwave auctions and his plans to rewrite the agency’s net neutrality rules.
