The Future of Broadband Tech

Net neutrality is a hot issue in the US, especially after the FCC has issued a proposal for Title II, utility-style regulation of broadband Internet service. (See Muni Operators Split on Title II and The Sound of One Hand Clapping.)

The New Jersey Institute of Technology’s online Master of Science in Electrical Engineering program is throwing its point of view in ahead of its Engineering Week, taking place next week "to showcase how engineers are making the world a better place." The group has issued an infographic to outline past investments in broadband and compare the US's services to those in Europe.

Check it out below for more on the history of net neutrality and broadband services across the globe.

good to try to remember the history
Title II should be inserted into this timeline (or another infographic with the milestones of laws regulating the communication infrastructure of the US)... because it'll be a significant step that probbaly won't be resolved for years... but still a significant step nonetheless.

Re: A Fantastic "Overview"....
@Mike: This is an important milestone. Not just in US, but also for the rest of the world. Whatever will be the outcome, it will be quoted as precedent in other countries. If US and Europe have different outcomes, the startups and consequently venture capital will view the two regions very differently.

A Fantastic "Overview"....
...as a Pivotal vote is before the FCC on the proposed rules by the Chair which we have all deliberated over the ensuing weeks and months.   Although I don't believe the FCC vote is the "Final Vote", at least the battle lines are drawn.     Fun to be continually witness to history.....
