New Federal Communication Comission (FCC) rules do not do enough to prevent wireless carriers from charging extra to access various services such as Skype, Netflix, Facebook, etc. If you are one of millions of consumers in the United States who regularly accesses the Internet through a mobile carrier, these new rules may soon have an effect on your pocket book.
The FCC says that if it begins to witness unreasonable discrimination over wireless that it may impose additional rules as needed.
Wireless protections are necessary because many people, especially poor people, use their cell phones as their only internet connection.
The FCC must reexamine wireless protections and provide Wireless eQuality.
