Event Description:
On December 14, the Federal Communications Commission voted to enact the Restoring Internet Freedom Act (RIFA) which repealed internet neutrality rules. The rollback of net neutrality regulations, depending on whom you listen to, is either the death of the internet as we know it or the unleashing of a new era of innovation and growth. Understanding the issue is difficult, to say the least.

As a service to La Porte Chamber members, Surf Air Wireless and Qubit Networks are sponsoring an informational forum about the repeal of internet neutrality. As changes come to internet services as the result of regulatory rollback, is the outlook bleak or bright for local businesses and governments?

Paul S. Maxwell, a nationally recognized communications industry analyst and the regulatory advisor to the Surf Air Wireless family of tech businesses, will help business owners and government officials by offering insights and real information about net neutrality’s repeal.

Maxwell will address questions such as:
  • What bearing does the RIFA have on the day-to-day operations of local businesses and governments?
  • Will providers charge extra for access to certain data like cloud-based applications?
  • Will businesses face increased operational costs to maintain their current level of service?
  • Can providers really block, slow, censor or redirect internet traffic?
  • What role will state and local governments play in this new state of affairs?
