CCATP #513 – Tom Merritt on Net Neutrality

Tom Merrit smilel black jacket beardTom Merritt, host of Daily Tech News Show, joins us to explain the implications of the different rulings of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regarding Internet traffic in the United States. He’ll attempt to clarify the difference between the 2002 ruling where broadband was declared an information service provider and the 2015 ruling where it was changed to a common carrier.

And of course we’ll talk about the implications of the vote by the FCC next week on this issue.

In this discussion Tom cites some statistics from the FCC regarding the availability of 25mbps broadband in the US developed areas. His source is the FCC report on Internet Access Services: Status as of June 30, 2016.
