“The Internet’s future hangs in the balance today as three federal judges in Washington decide whether to strike down “net neutrality.” This is the popular term for a legal principle, embraced by the Federal Communications Commission this year, that means Internet providers can’t favor some websites over others when delivering content to consumers.”
There is a great nutshell summary on entrepreneur.com of the opposing views and high stakes involved as the telecom industry sues the FCC in Federal Court to overturn their recent ruling in support of Net Neutrality. Of course, contrary to predictions from industry pundits, it hasn’t resulted in massive tax increases nor has it significantly impacted investment in new infrastructure. In fact, it hasn’t really even resulted in Net Neutrality. T-Mobile recently announced their “fast lane” program called Binge On, wrapped nicely in a bow for Holiday Shoppers. They must be pretty confident that they will prevail – maybe the fix is in. I am cynical enough to believe it is. FracTEL is a long time proponent of Net Neutrality and truly believes that it is best for the consumer and for the industry. Supporters seems confident that Net Neutrality will survive the challenge. We hope that it does. Either way, it is likely to end up in the Supreme Court soon.
