|Date: Sun, 09 Nov 2014 14:55:03 -0500 From: Bill Horne <bill@horneQRM.net> To: firstname.lastname@example.org. Subject: Verizon: ISPs will sue unless government adopts weaker net neutrality rules Message-ID: <email@example.com> Verizon warns government that utility-style rules will lead to lawsuits. Verizon is gearing up for a fight over the government's latest net neutrality plan, which could impose stricter rules on Internet service providers than a previous net neutrality order that Verizon also sued over. Verizon sued to overturn the Federal Communications Commission's 2010 Open Internet Order, forcing the FCC to try again. The commission tentatively approved rules in May that would prevent Internet service providers from blocking or degrading traffic from third-party Web services while allowing "fast lane" deals in which companies could pay for faster access to consumers. http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2014/11/verizon-isps-will-sue-unless-government-adopts-weaker-net-neutrality-rules/ -or- http://goo.gl/gdgF0O -- Bill Horne (Remove QRM from my address to write to me directly) Now my advice for those who die Declare the pennies on your eyes - Beatles|
|Date: Sun, 09 Nov 2014 14:44:13 -0500 From: Bill Horne <bill@horneQRM.net> To: firstname.lastname@example.org. Subject: One man's failed quest to buy wired Internet from TWC or Verizon Message-ID: <email@example.com> Many Americans have just one good option for wireline broadband service. But even one good choice puts them ahead of people in some sparsely populated areas that Internet service providers neglect because they aren't dense enough to provide huge profits. Although progress is being made in rural America through a combination of private and public initiatives, there are still people like Jesse Walser of Pompey, a town of 7,000 residents in New York. Walser, who works as a laboratory analyst at a beer brewery, is one of the five percent of Americans who live in areas without any providers offering wired Internet service (excluding dialup). Walser's only viable options are wireless. http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2014/11/one-mans-failed-quest-to-buy-wired-internet-from-twc-or-verizon/ -or- http://goo.gl/RsroIO -- Bill Horne (Remove QRM from my address to write to me directly) There is a road, no simple highway, Between the dawn and the dark of night, And if you go no one may follow, That path is for your steps alone. - Grateful Dead|
