Las Vegas - FCC chairman Julius Genachowski said Verizon Communications' lawsuit challenging the agency's network-neutrality regulations was "distracting" and could create uncertainty and confusion in the market.
Genachowski, in his third appearance at CES, primarily used the stage Wednesday to stump for his favorite issue -- pushing TV broadcasters to auction off their spectrum to be used for wireless broadband.
On network neutrality, Genachowski said he was proud of the outcome, which he claimed has not hampered investment in broadband networks and applications.
