Today, SIIA filed these comments to the Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) on international Internet policy priorities. The comments are in response to this NTIA Notice of Inquiry (NOI) soliciting stakeholder input. SIIA’s suggested priorities are summarized below. The first three priorities are particularly important because they lay the foundation for good international Internet policy, broadly speaking.
In comments to the Postal Regulatory Commission on March 1, SIIA urged a rethink of proposed new rate authority for the Postal Service that could result in increases for first class mail and periodicals in the neighborhoods of 30 and 40 percent, respectively.
