Republican lawmakers has demanded the US Federal Communications Commissions (FCC) to rip its net neutrality rules, which seeks to prevent broadband providers from selectively slowing or blocking web traffic.
The US Federal Communications Commission is all set to vote on the universal service fund (USF) that aims to take high-speed broadband service to all parts of the country.
The $8 billion USF program, which is already providing broadband service to schools, libraries and health centers, will focus on the under-served areas of the country.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chairman, Julius Genachowski, will propose the preliminary plans to subsidize and combine rural telephone service into a single entity by converting the $8 billion fund.
Officials said that the FCC will outline the proposal in a speech on Monday, outlining ways to provide broadband Internet service to areas that lack effective service.
DC appeals courts have been asked by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to keep aside the cases meted on them by Verizon and MetroPCS where they have filed against Open Internet rules.
A merger Comcast and NBC would have to survive under net neutral states for at least seven years, according to escaped details in terms of the FCC's proposed terms.
Sources have said that the US Federal Communications Commission has decided that it will push for an incentive in spectrum auction. This is going to be down despite rising criticism for the step.
The opponents say that this auction would have been the quickest way to make wireless spectrum get in usage for the mobile broadband providers.
