Tech at Night: Net Neutrality nears, CWA angry at Obama, 4G competition delayed, Blackburn leads

Neil Stevens

The FCC continues to stall national 4G wireless competition in America, as LightSquared continues to be stalled even after having to give up half its spectrum!

Meanwhile the Net Neutrality power grab creeps closer to being official, at which time MetroPCS and Verizon will sue. I expect them to win and get the regulations tossed out, too, because the last time the FCC tried this, Comcast sued and won.

At least some good things are going on. Marsha Blackburn will show everyone how it’s done and seek ways to address privacy issues without threatening innovation and the free market. There are good reasons she’s Tech at Night’s favorite member of Congress, and why she ought to head up Energy and Commerce, or at least a subcommittee, someday…

…Rooting for injuries: communications union CWA is lashing out about the lawsuit against AT&T. I don’t blame them: they were reluctant team players on Net Neutrality, and expected payback from the left when it came time for the union to absorb T-Mobile’s employees. Now the Obama administration seeks to prevent that large unionization from happening. Pass the popcorn.
