FCC Needs Change

AT&T is back together. The Telecom Act of 1996 has largely been a wipe-out. We have a Duopoly and we have seen more than trillion dollars spent on networks without wiring most homes with fiber - and way less businesses with fiber access. Imagine that.  (Let's not even talk about the Digital TV (DTV) Transition mess. Luckily, that day wasn't SuperBowl Saturday).

Copps is the acting FCC chief and he has started to clean house of Martin cronies. (Change is in the Air at the FCC). Copps also stated that he wouldn't do much in the interim to allow the new Chair an open slate.  But Copps can sit on his hands because the DTV is coming and Congress is getting involved. (That won't be good). There are Net Neutrality issues that are integrated with Network Management policies to examine, like with Cox and Comcast. And probably with Verizon's use of its own CDN. 

Let's not even talk about the big issues like data collection, white spaces spectrum, Universal Service Slush fund (USF, e-Rate), Inter-Carrier Compensation, and Numbering with Portability.  Heavy issues to be addressed. Julius Genachowski has even been put up for vetting yet
