What the FCC’s “Open Internet” Ruling REALLY Means for the Enterprise
For enterprise customers, there’s no question that the FCC’s net neutrality decision tomorrow will be historic. (And no, not just because it’s one of the very, very few times that the lobbying juggernaut of cable+telco hit a wall.)
The decision is a long overdue, formal acknowledgment that the Internet is the dominant means of plain old communications in today’s world. And it is way past time for Congressional leaders and D.C. policy-makers to admit that. Much of the discussion about the FCC’s proceeding has focused on two big picture, public policy issues: Title II reclassification and forbearance. But for enterprise customers, the Order is also supposed to address two practical matters with high dollar impacts: terminating charges and universal service.
