The Roadblock Ahead: FCC
vs. Comcast What's Next.
May 25, 2010 From 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT
Abstract: As the US looks to redefine its National Broadband Policy the FCC
finds itself be questioned about its authority. Access and Over the Top services are both desired in the future
markets, but the role of the FCC is now in question.
- Does the FCC have jurisdiction to manage the interaction between access and applications?
- How much of the old rules can be applied when the model is no longer based on carrier interaction but theinternetworking that goes beyond the distance the of a single provider?
- What concerns do applications and services like peer to Peer have about the control by access providers?
- Should the rules be the same regardless of wireline and wireless?
