Open hearings needed before FCC issues damaging rule on internet access – Portland Press Herald

Trevor Jones, VP of Marketing, Sales and Customer Service at OTT Communications — LeverettNet’s Internet Service Provider—authored this Op-Ed column:

As a business executive in a telecommunications company, I don’t see the elimination of net-neutrality rules as “pro-business,” “pro-internet freedom” or even “pro-telecommunications.” Small to mid-sized businesses hoping to offer innovative, competitive services are at risk of being squeezed out of the marketplace by larger competitors.Who does benefit? A handful of very large companies including Comcast, Charter, Verizon and Level 3 that would seek to leverage their market dominance and control traffic on the internet in the interest of limiting competition and increasing their own profits.
