White House Net Neutrality Petition

Please consider signing this White House petition concerning Net Neutrality here.  These things do have an impact!

The good news is that the FCC chair’s perfidious proposal has run into a buzz-saw of opposition.  Most notably, and importantly, from the other two Democratic commissioners.  One can even squint and see the possibility that this might be “the” Net Neutrality battle that gets broadband providers re-regulated as common carriers.  I think it will more likely be the “next” flare up of this fight.

Regardless, I remain confident that the re-regulation of the US telecom sector will happen – it is mostly a matter of when and under what conditions.   Broadband is a utility.  And utilities end up regulated.  Often quite profitably for utility company shareholders.  Albeit less so for utility company managements.
