Today in Mobile

The fallout continues after yesterday’s call for open Internet access from FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski. Predictably, AT&T and Verizon have come out against Genachowski’s proposals, joining some Republican lawmakers in opposition to network-neutrality regulations. But Sprint and Clearwire both seemed to back the move, and Genachowski has the backing of two Democratic FCC commissioners, ensuring a majority on the five-person commission. There will be plenty of debate (and no shortage of grandstanding) during the coming months from both sides, but I expect to see much of Genachowski’s agenda adopted when all is said and done.
