The FCC: from Powell to Martin
In isen.blog, David Isenberg compares the difference between the Powell FCC and the Martin FCC. Frankly, I see no difference. I have to agree with a comment posted by Mike Stagg.
All Martin is doing is taking Powell's approach to its logical conclusion: the networks belong to those that own them. Customers don't own them. Independent ISPs don't own them. CLECs don't own them. Cable and phone companies do own them and can (with the FCC's permission) do with them as they damned well please.
The honeymoon is over.
