The Telecom Digest for Feb 27, 2015
|Of recent years... representative government all over the world has been threatened with a growing paralysis. Legislative bodies have tended more and more to become wholly inefficient for the purposes of legislation. The prime feature in causing this unhealthy growth has been the discovery by minorities that under the old rules of parliamentary procedure they could put a complete stop to all legislative action... If the minority is as powerful as the majority there is no use of having political contests at all, for there is no use in having a majority.|

Subject: Verizon: Show Us the Money (The "Title II" Money Trail Exposed) Message-ID: <email@example.com> by Bruce Kushnick Verizon has told the FCC, the public, or anyone else who will listen, that imposing 'utility-style regulations', sometimes referred to as 'Title II", on broadband providers -- will harm investment. What is Title II, Net Neutrality? Fact is: Verizon's entire financial plan for network deployment and investment is based on Title II, utility style regulation, today, and has been for time immemorial.

Subject: AT&T and Verizon Wait For FCC To Announce Internet Rules Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> The wireless industry has been divided on Title II reclassification. However, the Federal Communications Commission will give its final verdict on net neutrality today. By: Martin Blanc The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is going to vote on open internet rules, deciding the fate of the internet for millions of users in the US. But while consumers and pro-net neutrality advocates rejoice, internet service providers (ISPs) such as AT&T Inc and Verizon Communications Inc are gearing up to fight the FCC over reclassification. The FCC is considering regulating the internet as a utility under Title II of the Telecommunications Act, giving it more authority to regulate its interconnection deals. Under the Open Internet rules of 2010, ISPs are allowed to enter into paid prioritization deals with content providers, as long as those deals are "commercially reasonable." However, content providers like Netflix Inc have been arguing that ISPs have been misusing the rules to charge excessive rates for paid prioritization, causing FCC to take notice. http://www.bidnessetc.com/35673-att-inc-and-verizon-communications-inc-wait-for-fcc-to-announce-internet-ru/ -or- http://goo.gl/XYU3mG -- Bill Horne (Remove QRM from my address to write to me directly)|

Subject: What the net neutrality battle is really about Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> What the net neutrality battle is really about by Julia Boorstin The FCC's proposed net neutrality regulations are widely expected to be approved Thursday by a three-to-two vote along partisan lines. The battle between Internet companies and Internet service providers has heated up ahead of the vote, with CEOs on both sides weighing in - including Netflix's Reed Hastings, for one, in favor, and Comcast's Brian Roberts, for the other, against it. But the two sides aren't really disagreeing over net neutrality itself: There's general consensus about the basic tenets of no blocking or throttling of basic Internet service. http://www.cnbc.com/id/102459090# -- Bill Horne (Remove QRM from my address to write to me directly)|
