FCC Chair Wheeler Missed a Point

At Comptel, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler was the keynote speaker. Competition is the FCC model, he stated. Really? Since when? Do you think we have adequate competition in anything but cellular? Wheeler says that for the FCC "the best...

The Net Neutrality Debacle

Many people have asked me about this. I don't have a rant about the FCC's Net Neutrality decision. We got screwed but I can't get worked up about it because that is what I expect to happen in DC...

The FCC Is Useless

As yet another FCC Chairman gets his job just to help out the Duopoly, I conclude that we can save about $350 million per year by closing the FCC. The FCC is totally useless to the average taxpayer. This...

The Fight Between Verizon and Netflix

It seems to be all over the news (like here) that Verizon (and Comcast) aren't happy with Netflix. Netflix has too many users and eats up too much bandwidth. Users buy bigger pipes and FiOS just to get faster...

Is Verizon Warring on AWS, Netflix?

A bunch of articles that were forwarded to me today -- Mashable, GigaOm, and a blog -- all about the consumer experience with FiOS, Verizon's fiber-to-the-home service, is throttled to certain destinations like AWS. The blog post shows a...

The Internet Economy Took a Shot Yesterday

When the DC Circuit ruled yesterday against the FCC and its rules for open INternet or Net Neutrality, it basically gave the 10 top ISPs even more power than they had. In 2001, households paid $20 for dial-up access...

As expected Verizon won, "the DC circuit, in which the appeals court struck down the FCC's net neutrality rules because the the FCC had no mandate under the rules it used to issue that ruling." TechDirt has a good...

Verizon Fights FCC for Editorial Control of Internet

Thanks to recent revelations, we know that Verizon, AT&T and others are feeding the NSA with all our emails, call records, Internet search history, etc. In the wake of this privacy nightmare, Verizon is in court fighting the FCC...

Linky Links

Here are a bunch of stories that I just can't get to write about but are interesting. Google has flip-flopped on Net Neutrality now that it is an ISP in 3 markets. How peering arrangements mean that YouTube and Netflix...

VZ Buys Terremark for $1.4B

I was shocked last night when I read that VZ had purchased Terremark for $1.4B. It reminded me of MCI Worldcom buying Intermedia just to acquire the Digex assets. It really is all about Cloud these days! Rackspace and...

Comcast-NBC Merger is Failure Two

This will be a far reaching rant but I think that it's time the FCC (and other F-Agencies) close their doors. Really. We have a huge deficit and really you just aren't honoring your duties or worth the expense any...

Copps and McDowell are on opposing sides of the Net Neutrality rules, which have still not been released to the public (and probably won’t be until next week).McDowell thinks that there is competition. This from the former lawyer at COMPTEL....

FCC Net Neutrality Proposal

Image via Wikipedia FCC Commission Members Differ over Network Openness Proposals. Duh! They always do. The commissioners have historically voted along party lines. Net Neutrality is about saving our economy. It’s about the Internet - wired, wireless, cellular. The Internet needs to...

FCC and Net Neutrality

There’s been some buzz this week about the FCC’s Internet Policy. We have a couple of problems in America right now: not enough broadband competition and not enough broadband. Without competition, the monopoly ISP doesn’t have to build out (see...

Just Another Party Pooper

Image by Getty Images via @daylife When Robert McDowell left COMPTEL for a job as FCC Commissioner, many thought that competition would have a friend at the agency. Once again the DC political machine is at work. It was...

Comcast Making Waves

Big peering fight between Comcast and Level3. “On November 19, 2010, Comcast informed Level 3 that, for the first time, it will demand a recurring fee from Level 3 to transmit Internet online movies and other content to Comcast’s customers who request such...

FCC and Broadband Growth

Trending on my twitter stream is Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council (SBE Council) President Karen Kerrigan’s op-ed in the Washington Post about net neutrality and the FCC’s proposal to impose Internet “reclassification.” Basically, she states: FCC Regulations Would Smother Growing...

Americans Agree the Internet is Working

3 Reasons I Get a Rash from my Industry

Actually, I don't get a rash from the Industry but from a large portion of the people in my Industry. There are so many changes happening right now - every where. Our Industry is experiencing so many factors: declining prices,...

Not a Political Piece

This isn't meant to be political but more like here are some thoughts for digestion. This first is from FCC Commish Copps (thanks to Benton Foundation): "I think most of you understand how important the Internet and access to high-speed...

Verizon Starts Blocking

Comcast won in court over the FCC on the issue of traffic shaping, so Verizon started blocking ports this week. First, VZ started blocking port 25 yesterday on their FiOS and DSL networks. Now VoIP Traffic is being blocked. From...
