FCC announces plan to protect access to an open Internet

,----[ Quote ]
| During a speech at the Brookings Institution this 
| morning, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski outlined a 
| proposal for explicit rules that would protect consumer 
| access to an open Internet. The proposed rules would 
| preserve "network neutrality," preventing broadband-
| based Internet providers from discriminating against 
| certain services, applications, or viewpoints on the 
| Web, and requiring providers to be transparent about 
| their network management practices.


Neutrality Begins at Home

| Comcast and Vonage have been pretending to be friends 
| for a while now. Itâs all part of the âWe donât really 
| need that old Net Neutralityâ song Comcast and the 
| other big ISPs have been singing, including the verse 
| that says Vonage is okay by them.



FCC To Introduce Net Neutrality Rule

| Julius Genachowski, chairman of the Federal Communications
| Commission, plans to propose a new so-called net neutrality rule
| Monday that could prevent telecommunications, cable and wireless
| companies from blocking Internet applications, according to
| sources at the agency.

| The Federal Communications Commission has launched an inquiry to AT&T Inc.
| (T) and Apple Inc. (AAPL) over the rejection of Google Inc.'s (GOOG) voice
| application for the popular iPhone.
| In letters sent late Friday to the three companies, the FCC asked why Apple
| rejected the Google Voice application for the iPhone and removed
| related "third- party applications" from its store.


Why The FCC Wants To Smash Open The iPhone

,----[ Quote ]
| Right about now, Apple probably wishes it had never rejected Google Voice and
| related apps from the iPhone. Or maybe it was AT&T who rejected the apps.
| Nobody really knows. But the FCC launched an investigation last night to find
| out, sending letters to all three companies (Apple, AT&T, and Google) asking
| them to explain exactly what happened.
