A Holiday Hootenanny Hiatus, But First, Some Title II Talk
For those of who’ve been doing the Telecom Two-Step over the past year, the holiday break can’t come soon enough. Last week, comments were due on the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) latest proposal to impose Title II common-carrier regulation under the guise of net neutrality national security. Before that, we had the FCC’s new and expansive “digital discrimination” rules. Early in the New Year, we’ve got reply comments due on Title II and comments on the FCC’s proposal to ban early termination fees for cable and satellite providers.
The FCC has pushed telecom folks to crank out more content than James Patterson. So, we can be forgiven for pouring ourselves a cup of cheer, turning on “The Muppet Christmas Carol,” and taking a brief hiatus.
