Comment on The FCC changed course on network neutrality. Here is why you should care. by Michael Elling (@Infostack)

Fri, 25 Apr 2014 19:05:52 +0000

This is an issue that also touches on interconnection and the IP transition currently underway. It makes sense to move the cloud as far to the edge as possible. The future will not be about 1-way HD streaming, or VoIP or SMS. It will be about cheap, ubiquitous 4K on-demand video, 2-way HD telepresences, mobile BB (multi-screen, multi-network), and the internet of things. All of these require improved capacity (cheaper, more reliable), the latter 3 require a big pickup (near parity) in upstream bandwidth. Nobody is talking about this. But the current regulations simply won't get us there. We need more intelligence at the edge and we need balanced settlements that enable more rapid clearing of supply and demand north-south (Apps to infrastructure and vice versa) and east-west (end-users of networks and/or app/content providers and managed service providers). Time to recognize the cons of both models (IP lacks price signals for 2-way exchange and vertically integrated incumbent edge access providers are overpriced due to stranded capex and opex). Time to harness the pros of both models and move forward.

Comment on Is Verizon Wireless illegally blocking Google Wallet? It’s time for the FCC to investigate by Seth Johnson

If Verizon were to require all devices on their network to use a Verizon-authorized key, that would count as blocking the openness conditions.

Since Verizon is blocking Google from a "feature" of their device, not their network, it would seem to be easy to argue around this if Verizon allows other devices. The real issue here is that the device isn't a general purpose device, since it does not give the person who buys it root.
