Re: Verizon does "throwback Thursday" response
Eyder wrote for the Two-Way, "Without net neutrality rules, ISPs could theoretically take money from companies like Netflix or Amazon to speed up traffic to their sites."

Thursday's vote comes after Commissioners Michael O'Rielly and Ajut Pai asked that the FCC "immediately release the 332-page Internet regulation plan publicly and allow the American people a reasonable period of not less than 30 days to carefully study it."

That request was denied. Obviously.

Re: Impact on IP VPN services
The dissenting votes came from Michael O'Rielly and Ajut Pai, Republicans who warned that the FCC was overstepping its authority and interfering in commerce to solve a problem that doesn't exist. They also complained that the measure's 300-plus pages weren't publicly released or openly debated.

The new policy would replace a prior version adopted in 2010 — but that was put on hold following a legal challenge by Verizon. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled last year that the FCC did not have sufficient regulatory power over broadband.

Impact on IP VPN services
I would appreciate an informed interpretation of the impact Broadband Title II Rules on IP VPN services. Under these new rules does it become impossible to offer specific Quality of Service within an SLA agreement? Dennis Morgen

Re: Verizon does "throwback Thursday" response
Duh!,

It is better than my proposed release:

"To protect our clients from security issues, we are constraining our peering to a single T-1 line. We, of course, will treat that traffic with neutrality."

Re: Verizon does "throwback Thursday" response
Disappointing and not even remotely funny.  One expects adolescent political theater from activists.  Usually, corporate relations-types express concern like adults.

focus?
Could this message from the FCC get carriers to focus back on the network?  It seems to me like they were distracted lately with trying to figure out clever ways to increase margin a bit by prioritizing traffic.  Obviously I understand why they want to increase margin (although it may hurt long term), but I think they spent so many cycles on it they neglected investing in their basic product to a large degree.

Perhaps this is overly optimistic.

Re: Uncomfortable but
 

So Mitch...how does this make a company build a new wireline or wireless network?

Not reuse - not resell - but overbuild the US.

Uncomfortable but
I'm uncomfortable with this degree of government oversight, but haven't seen a better alternative. Consumers have a lack of choice in broadband providers, and the US trails behind other markets with more regulated economies.

Verizon does "throwback Thursday" response
The Verizon policy blog posted its response in Morse code -- you can see it here: http://publicpolicy.verizon.com/blog/entry/fccs-throwback-thursday-move-imposes-1930s-rules-on-the-internet.

If you click on "21st century" version, it displays the comments in manual typewriter fonts, here: http://publicpolicy.verizon.com/assets/docs/VZ_NR_--_2-26-15_VZ_Statement_on_Open_Internet_Order_FINAL_1.pdf.

I'm still waiting for what the details look like on this. Seems like al the responses are exactly what we'd expect.
