Socolow Cited in The Times of London Article on Net Neutrality

The Times of London interviewed Michael Socolow, an associate professor in the Department of Communication and Journalism at the University of Maine, for the article “Net neutrals are set to be losers after court ruling.” The article focuses on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals decision to strike down the FCC’s network neutrality rule that would make it illegal for cable and phone companies to block sites to users. Socolow said he has little faith in the FCC’s commitment to action on net neutrality, but added he also thinks neither content providers such as Netflix nor the big telecom companies such as Verizon would rush to raise prices.
