FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler has proposed new ‘net neutrality’ rules, the agency’s third attempt at regulating internet service providers as a public utility. The new proposition is a reaction to the attempts of several major internet providers to restrict the sites their customers can visit to limit the use of high broadband sites such as Netflix.
Talks between Sprint and T-Mobile about a possible acquisition have ceased, according to an unnamed source. Heads of both companies have met with Federal Communications Commission Chair Tom Wheeler in recent months and it is believed that the deal was called off because of fears that it would be blocked by the FCC, antitrust regulators, and the US Judiciary. This news shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone.
