The FCC’s lengthy order on Net neutrality and Title II regulation went into effect in June, which prohibits ISPs from favoring or throttling traffic, or from establishing a pay-to-play scheme that requires over-the-top (OTT) content providers to pay for the privilege of transmission.
Find out what this Net neutrality policy means for your business at The FCC’s Open Internet Order: Key Issues for Carriers and ISPs, a free half-day workshop sponsored by Davis Wright Tremaine LLP. This informative event will take place on Wednesday, October 21, during COMPTEL PLUS in San Francisco.
This workshop wraps up the conference by exploring the order’s impact on the telecommunications industry landscape, including providers’ privacy and security-related responsibilities as well as the possible extension of universal service obligations to broadband providers.
