MENLO PARK, June 22, 2006 (PodTech News) – “If we want people and entrepreneurs and companies to invest the billions of dollars to get true broadband, then we cannot put restrictions on that in effect are price controls that give people access for free,” said Forbes, Inc. President and CEO Steve Forbes in an interview with PodTech’s Catherine Girardeau. The U.S. Senate Commerce Committee is nearing a vote on a far-reaching telecom reform bill that does not include “network neutrality” provisions. Senate Democrats favor amendments to the bill that would prevent network operators from imposing a two-tiered pricing structure on Internet content providers.
