Net neutrality advocates weren't going to let the FCC roll back the Open Internet Order without making their voices heard. Protesters gathered outside the FCC building yesterday to chant, cheer a series of speakers and brandish signs of outrage. And while the distress over the agency's move to relax Internet oversight rules was real, there was also room for some gallows humor, as evidenced by the fake Internet cemetery designed around concrete barriers at the FCC entryway.

For more on the substance of yesterday's FCC vote, read: FCC Ends Net Neutrality.

Oh wait, he spells his name Michael O'Rielly.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
