FCC moves closer to adopting rules on Internet access

Months of debate and more than 1 million comments about rules for Web traffic may have moved regulators to consider tougher standards for wireless networks that connect smartphones and tablets. With the Federal Communications Commission ending its period to accept comments Monday, Chairman Tom Wheeler is weighing whether to bar wireless companies led by AT&T and Verizon Communications from treating differently some Web content - applying the same rules as wired services.

AT&Ta s fascinating third-way proposal on net neutrality

That's what AT&T is proposing to the Federal Communications Commission in an attempt to bridge the gap between regulation-wary industry groups and net neutrality advocates who want strong government protections for the open Internet. Net neutrality - the idea that Internet service providers shouldn't speed up, slow down or manipulate consumers' Web traffic - has been the subject of intense lobbying from both sides in recent weeks as we've raced toward a final deadline for public comments at the FCC.

Most Americans Don't Want Internet 'Fast Lanes,' Poll Finds

A particularly timely finding, as the public comment period for Federal Communications Commission's proposed rule on net neutrality draws to a close Two-thirds of Americans don't like the idea of big web companies paying Internet service providers to deliver their content more quickly via so-called "fast lanes" on the Internet, according to a recent poll . CALinnovates, a San Francisco-based coalition that works on public policy in technology, asked people earlier this month about whether they thought rules should be in place "prioritizing Internet traffic such as one company willing to pay over another."

Tariffing the Internet

Since the early days of the Internet, the Federal Communications Commission has taken a largely "hands off" regulatory approach - a light touch widely held to be a key contributor to the rapid innovation, diffusion and adoption of Internet services in the United States. Facilitating this deregulatory approach to a vibrant new sector of the communications industry was the agency's classification of broadband Internet access as an "information service" under Title I of the Communications Act.

Are you seeing a continuous 'loading' symbol on websites today? There's a reason...

Internet users of Netflix and several other major companies may have seen this symbol when trying to load websites on Wednesday Did you log off of Netflix Tuesday night to take a quick break from Orange is the New Black, get a power nap in, then wake up to catch a few more episodes before work, only to find that your internet connection seemed to be a little slow? Were Piper and Crazy Eyes lagging a bit on your TV screen? Were Frank Underwood's monologues stuttering? Probably not, but you may have seen an "infinitely-loading" symbol on your screen. Well, there's no reason to call and yell at your internet provider, Netflix did it on purpose.
