in the Article: FCC Asking All Carriers to Explain Throttling Policies forum

What he's saying is that carriers have the money/resources to make it so 'network optimization' is never even needed...but they'd rather milk customers instead. I don't understand why people make excuses for billion dollar corporations

Well put...I'd say they fact that they can't is just an example of AT&T's and Verizon's lobby exerting their influence. But it looks like with this ruling, and the recent articles about representatives not necessarily against a T-Mobile-Sprint merger...there may be a possibility...

"The best case scenario would be a politician who doesn't lie and abuse public tax dollars actually holding these companies to their promises" That really is the root of it all. Wheeler trying to help his buddies out...now that's the icing on the cake.

where do you get that 90% figure from? And how is it not in consumer's interest? Anything that can help fight cell phone theft as well as the fear of getting your head cracked for a phone is a step in the right direction....

Perfectly put. When I first read it, I thought you were arguing for ISP's. What do you think about the idea of designating ISP's and cell providers as public utilities and actually regulating them?

I read that because the federal reserve is about to stop its stimulus program interest rates and the cost of borrowing money so cheap is about to go away. This was a now or never scenario and Verizon realized it would never be able to borrow the money so cheap for another generation

right, Obama couldn't have been re-elected because Mitt Romney pretty much changed his stance on every issue, catered to the extreme right, and dismissed minorities and anyone that was part of the "47%". I'm sure the comments about having binders of women and corporations being people didn't help.... Obama was re-elected because Romney was a toolbag. "I believe in an America where millions of Americans believe in an America that's the America millions of Americans believe in. That's the ...

Why would you want that? Nobody is killing anyone. If anything, Softbank/Sprint will buy T-Mobile USA down the road.

I don't necessarily believe that. It was just a response to a petition. There are thousands of petitions that people create. The fact that it was commented on by the FCC and the President is a great thing. And the FCC chair said he is going to see what he can do. As far as bringing legislation, congress can't even pass legislation that we need to keep the country running functionally. Why would they vote on this now, when ...

I'm not too up on this stuff, but maybe you guys can help me understand. Does this mean that a cell phone manufacturers eventually won't need to make both a GSM and CDMA variant of a phone? And they'll just be able to have one phone with all the radios (cdma and gsm) built into one chip?

in the Article: Sprint Taking 'Wait-and-See' Approach to Phone Financing forum

that sprint will ultimately end subsudies, and go for the financing method. It's a good move. I think that eventually, all providers will follow. We'll probably just get to the point where the carriers are cut out of the device buying, and they'll just offer the service. Until the FCC puts up the nationwide WiFi network they keep talking about, that has the US wireless carriers and cable/broadband companies pooping bricks WINNING

yea me too. he got the update, there was a glitch that froze him out text messaging, so he had to do a master reset. But it looks like it was well worth it, it's a lot faster now. It looks modern and it's very snappy.

in the Article: Verizon Asks FCC to Use Spectrum Screen in Sprint Review forum

I read that because base stations are 100x cheaper now, that spectrum is infinitely more valuable, and the data speeds are lightening fast. Softbank uses the same spectrum band in Japan, and could get cost savings with buying handsets for sprint, as well as itself.

i think you are right. I would say that 'wc4r' is correct though. This will ultimately go through, and we will start to see some serious competition in the wireless industry....It's LONG overdue

SERIOUSLY. I hope that the FCC takes the petition from Verizon and just throws it in the recycle bin...which I'm sure they will do figuratively
