At least someone things FCC is doing a bang-up job, indicated by financial investments in emerging competitors to traditional broadband and mobile industry incumbents.
“I understand that there has been a fair amount of debate about the regulatory framework that the FCC has chosen for broadband Internet services. I’m not a lawyer and can’t get into the fine points of the Communications Act. But I live my life in the financial world and I have made a substantial investment in what I expect will be a major new broadband wireless network in the United States. In that respect, I can say that the FCC’s broadband policies continue to actively encourage Harbinger’s and others’ multi-billion dollar investment in broadband innovation. It’s a truism that investment goes where it is welcome and this FCC, under Chairman Genachowski’s leadership, has gotten it right.” Philip Falcone, Chief Executive Officer of Harbinger Capital Partners on FCC’s Policies
