Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 2/10/2015

A little under the weather this week, so plan to do more of exploring the garage than being on the computer. 

And Yeah, I've been picking on Rick Perry today... a lot. but it's SOOOOOOO EASY.

FCC is ready to fight AT&T over net neutrality! 

AT&T will probably be one of the first companies to file a lawsuit if the Federal Communications Commission follows through on a plan to impose stricter rules on broadband. But FCC officials say they’re on solid legal ground.

In a call with reporters to discuss Chairman Tom Wheeler’s net neutrality proposal this week, an FCC official said that AT&T’s threatened lawsuit isn’t a surprise and FCC officials don’t expect it to be successful. AT&T is arguing that broadband has to be considered an information service and not a telecommunications service. This is important because only telecommunications providers can be treated as common carriers under Title II of the Communications Act, a designation that Wheeler will use to impose net neutrality rules.

The FCC official said it’s a simple matter: broadband providers offer, for a fee, a service to the public consisting of the transmission of packets. That makes it telecommunications in Wheeler’s view.

Using the common carrier status of telecommunications providers, Wheeler intends to apply net neutrality rules that prevent Internet providers from blocking or slowing down Web content or prioritizing it in exchange for payment

I agree with that. Network architecture shows you that everything is a layer on top of a layer, that each layer has a specific job to do that is different than the layer above or below it. In this case, the Internet providers are the ones at a lower level providing the means to get packets from point a  to point b, while the content rides ON that layer to its destination. What AT&T and other carriers have been doing and shouldn't be allowed to, is not treating all content as the same, but prioritizing, blocking, etc. It's NOT egalitarian.
