Today in Mobile

The FCC today outlined a framework for both fixed-line and mobile network operators in an effort to prevent discrimination against traffic on their networks. Chairman Julius Genachowski expanded on 4-year-old network-neutrality principles, adding six new guidelines and suggesting all the principles become formal rule and apply to both wireline and wireless networks. Expect plenty of push-back from the carriers as Genachowski’s initiatives move forward, expect to hear plenty from the net-neutrality crowd in the coming weeks.
