Analysis: FCC should undo '02 error to ensure net neutrality

Analysis: FCC should undo '02 error to ensure net neutrality | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it

"If the FCC actually wants to ensure net neutrality, it will have do something that every regulator in every other developed country did a long time ago. (It will also turn Verizon litigiously apoplectic.) It has to unmake the mistake it made in 2002, when it failed to classify cable Internet providers as telecommunications services. Doing so will solve everything."
