Guaranteeing Internet Growth

PrintE-mail

U.S. regulators started down a road today that could be a boon to telecommunications and computer manufacturers.  Speaking before a group in Washington, D.C. on how to preserve the openness and innovation of the Internet, the chairman of the Federal Communications Commission proposed rules against blocking or slowing web traffic that would apply to all internet service providers, including wireless phone companies  (http://www.fcc.gov/).  Such rules would give consumers greater freedom to download videos and music on their computers and mobile phones.  Up to now, some ISPs block, limit or slow such high bandwidth services.  Greater freedom to download high bandwidth services will equal more use of computers, Internet-based phones, mobile phones, video conferencing and all the supporting network equipment.
