WASHINGTON -- Today, Fred Campbell, formerly Chief of the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau at the FCC and a noted communications technology expert, launched the Center for Boundless Innovation in Technology (CBIT), a new policy organization focused on advocating for market oriented government policies to advance innovation in technology. Campbell, past founder of the Communications Liberty and Innovation Project, is also the Executive Director of CBIT.

According to Campbell, CBIT’s mission is to support the ingenuity and creative spirit of America’s high-tech entrepreneurs through market-oriented government policies in four key areas:

  • Limiting government control of the Internet
  • Promoting private investment in high-tech infrastructure and technologies
  • Modernizing our approach to spectrum allocation and assignment
  • Protecting our Constitutional rights to freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and privacy on the Internet

    CBIT will focus on advancing market-based solutions to the communications and Internet policy challenges of the digital age by advancing the idea that free markets inspire entrepreneurial excellence and are the best way to inspire boundless innovation in America’s technology industries.

    In addition to advocating for free market solutions to America’s technology policy challenges, CBIT will act as a counterweight to those who advocate increased regulation of the telecommunications and technology sectors. The new organization will offer substantive commentary, criticism and policy proposals on breaking Internet and communications issues, such as spectrum, mobile Internet, broadband, Internet governance, Internet privacy and free speech issues.

    According to Campbell, the idea to launch CBIT grew out of a desire to bring more balance to the communications and technology policy arena. “Discussions of Internet policy issues inside-the-beltway often center on the mistaken belief that more government regulation is the way to unleash innovation, and that belief is mistaken,” said Campbell.
