Next Tuesday, meet the man who’s protecting net neutrality

FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler will be in Philadelphia next week.

Wharton is hosting FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler on Tuesday, Feb. 2 at 4:30 p.m.

Wharton professor Kevin Werbach will moderate the conversation with Wheeler, best known for his plans to preserve what he called an “open internet” — a plan that’s at odds with businesses who fear over-regulation. It’ll be interesting to see where the conversation goes, since Wheeler is, after all, speaking at a business school. On the other hand, Werbach is a net neutrality advocate whom President Obama appointed to his FCC review team when he first entered office.
