Verizon Files Net Neutrality Suit Against FCC

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Internet, Legislation, Republicans

In my opinion, any company that opposes net neutrality is nuts. Because what they’re proposing is treating different web sites as if they were cable channels. That means they could make you pay more to visit sites that aren’t in their approved list of preferred sites. Newsflash…give me 2 minutes and I can create a […]

Good times… The FCC has been considering auctioning 25 megahertz of spectrum in the 2155MHz to 2180MHz band. As part of the rules for using the spectrum, the FCC plans to require […]

Want To Watch The Debate Live Tonight Online?

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Debates, Internet, Video

There are a lot of options for this (CNN, Current, C-Span), but I’d say MSNBC’s video offering is the best by far. However, there’s a new player in town called Hulu, and if you haven’t been to their site yet, you’re missing out. The joint venture between NBC Universal and News Corp. offers hundreds upon […]
