Internet Users Could Pay Much More For Broadband Under FCC Proposal

Wednesday, May 14, 2014

A crucial vote is taking place this week regarding the future of Internet use. FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler is floating a proposal that, according to Craig's guest Tim Karr, will allow broadband providers to strike special deals with Internet companies for preferential treatment — sometimes called “paid prioritization” — in the “last mile” of internet connection to consumers’ homes. Karr is an journalist and analyst for Free Press which has been lobbying against the proposed FCC rule.
