    Blair Levin on the history and future of US tech regulation

    Blair Levin on the history and future of US tech regulation

    Few people have been as pivotal in the history of US tech and telecom regulation as Blair Levin.
    Levin served as chief of staff in the Federal Communications Commission during the Clinton administration and led the development of the National Broadband Plan under President Obama. Today, he's the Executive Director of the Gig.U Project, which looks to accelerate the US deployment of next-generation networks.
    In this month's Top in Tech in-conversation, Senior Practice Director Conan D'Arcy speaks to Levin about the past and future of US telecom regulation, and how the calculus may be changing following a decision by the Supreme Court that may limit the power of regulators across the federal government. Could the US be heading towards a regulation model more reminiscent of the EU?
