The Digital Policy Institute (DPI), an interdisciplinary research organization based at Ball State University, will host a webinar titled “The Net Neutrality Debate: The Issues, the Arguments and Predictions of the Outcome” on Tuesday, July 15th, at 2:00 PM EST. The webinar will feature distinguished panelists who will analyze and offer insights on the future of “Net Neutrality.” Following the federal Appeals Court decision earlier this year rejecting its Net Neutrality rules, the FCC has opened a new Open Internet proceeding aimed at reinstating some form of Net Neutrality. Coinciding with the comment deadline at the FCC, the webinar panelists will tackle the issues in the FCC rulemaking and predict the outcome.
