+ - Why is there no net neutrality in mobile ?->

Submitted by Taco Cowboy
Taco Cowboy (5327) writes "The net neutrality issue has become a very hot topic recently, but curiously on the mobile scene, the net neutrality rules were absent

Why ?

Simply because the wireless companies have successfully convinced regulators four years ago to keep mobile networks mostly free of net neutrality rules

Now that Federal Communications Commission officials are looking into whether wireless networks should remain exempt from net neutrality rules the mobile carriers have lobbied hard to foil FCC's latest attempt

Wireless is different it is dependent on finite spectrum,” Meredith Attwell Baker, the new head of CTIA, the wireless industry’s lobbying arm, told reporters Tuesday

Baker previously served as the top lobbyist for Comcast’s NBCUniversal division, joining the company after serving as an FCC commissioner

On the other side of the spectrum, net neutrality advocates are hoping to convince regulators to include wireless networks more fully under any new proposed rules. They are pushing for the FCC to re-regulate broadband Internet under a section of the law (called Title II), which was written with old phone networks in mind

The FCC will be taking public comments about what it should do about new net neutrality rules through the end of July

You can comment by emailing to openinternet@fcc.gov or go to http://apps.fcc.gov/ecfs/uploa... to file a Consumer Informal Complaint
