FCC Responded to Comcast Case by a "Complete Overreach"

Robert McDowell, an FCC Commissioner, said recently in an interview that the argument stating that the case “Comcast against BitTorrent” in any way destroys FCC’s ability to control the broadband space can be considered a “complete overreach". McDowell explained his expressive negative response to the FCC majority's ruling to start its inquiry into sorting out the broadband transmissions under Title II ordinary carrier norms. Meredith Attwell Baker, a Republican Commissioner, joined him in that disagreement.

As you might remember, back in April the court in that case reversed the FCC's statement that Comcast ISP had been using inappropriate network management, ruling that the FCC had failed to considerably tie its decision to any congressional body.

Title II is Julius Genachowski's (an FCC Chairman) suggestion to clarify the above mentioned body, but McDowell believes it’s not required. He has regularly dis advised applying “monopoly phone regulations of a bypast time” to this one, pointing out that ordinary carrier regulations could even be traced back to the railroads in the eighteenth century.

What McDowell proposed is that enhancing a competition by opening up the blank spaces between TV channels for cordless broadband would be a much better way to fight potentially bad broadband players. All the concerns about handling the content in such an anti competitive way would instantly disappear. Moreover, McDowell was also a permanent champion of marketplace contest as a better ruler of conduct rather than regulation presented by FCC, and he also declares that the FCC wasn’t ruled powerless by the court ruling.

There seems to hide one more reason for FCC majority to consider Title II classification: it needs to ensure that it can move phone subsidies from the Universal Service Fund to broadband deployment within the National Broadband Plan. They actually think the FCC can already do it, according to the Communications Act. McDowell is sure that even if the authority in question is not there, the FCC still could tie the phone subsidy to performance in broadband.

In result, Robert McDowell was told that the FCC’s majority was considering emerging with an order on classification somewhat in several months. However, one can’t be sure whether it is going to occur before the election or after it. Anyway, this move can be called a tight turnaround for FCC.

Noch avataractually sounds interesting, the FCC made a killing selling off licenses to UHF frequencies in the 90's to start the whole ball rolling for cell phones .by selling off the unused transmission bands to wifi distributors would put one hell of a bunch in comcast's panties. although being a comcast customer myself i havent had any complaints getting a free upgrade from a 6 meg line to a 12 meg line ,while having having 6 comps running on my home network it was a huge relief,but to see comcast have more competition in the broadband market in my area i may prices drop dramatically.Only time will tell though after all the FCC is a government body and they take forever to get anything done.
