"Put up or shut up" time: FCC launches Notice of Inquiry on NN
Submitted by Scott Cleland on Tue, 2007-03-27 08:24
The most relevant part of the FCC launching a Notice of Inquiry (NOI) into the net neutality issue was FCC Bureau Chief Tom Navin testifying that no one has formally complained about blocking and no one has formally petitioned the FCC on the matter.
The FCC is launching an NOI to cut through the hysteria and misdirection and finally get the facts on the record.
While I don't think this bogus and completely unsubstantiated issue is even worthy of an NOI, I can understand why the FCC would want to launch an NOI to ensure that no one can say the FCC is not taking this issue seriously.
What I will be amused to see come out of the NOI is the new definition that NN proponents come up with.
I believe this NOI will ultimately flush out this bogus issue and show that there is no substance or merit to their hypothetical concerns.
I also believe that NN proponents will have an extremely hard time coming up with a principle that can be applied "neutrally" to all forms of Internet access technologies.
