Julius Genachowski's decision to step down as chairman of the Federal Communications Commission has the potential to spur an important conversation on the role of high-speed Internet in America.

 

But with a replacement yet to be named, the public dialogue over who should succeed him has focused largely on politics. It is imperative that politics not drive this discussion and overwhelm the important substantive issues that will inform the next chairman's term.

 

The next FCC chairman should pick up where Genachowski left off -- promoting economic growth by facilitating broadband technology. The new chairman should employ a "light touch" approach to broadband policy so that America's next generation of workers -- who depend on the Internet economy -- can succeed.

 

The need for broadband Internet across America has never been greater. While many people associate the Internet economy with major companies like Google or Facebook, the truth is that broadband enables entrepreneurship and innovation in industries across all sectors -- from writers, to attorneys, to consultants and more.


In fact, today's workplace is rapidly changing due to the entrance of the growing number of Millennials who virtually live on the Internet. And their demand for workplace flexibility is inciting innovation that is dependent on a robust broadband network.
