FCC set to make Net Neutrality vote tomorrow

February 25th, 2015

fcc-logoFCC chairman Tom Wheeler’s plan will go before the FCC board on Thursday for a vote on the “net neutrality” measures that have been proposed this month. Wheeler’s plan has been praised as relatively nonpartisan, and it has the support of the Obama administration, in the FCC’s attempt to “reclassify” broadband internet as a Class II utility under the Communications Act, bringing some measures of utility-like oversight by the federal government for broadband networks.

The 2015 CES (Consumer Electronics Show) was supposed to be a major turning point for the general public toward 4k, but if anything that looks to have backfired as even the big boys like Samsung, Netflix and ISPs like Comcast failed to push through anything that truly interested consumers…at least in terms of pulling their wallets out this season.
