TechDirt Reads the New Telco Bill

A new Telco bill emerged and TechDirt reads it for us.

From the post:

"Basically, the bill punts the issue to the FCC, but gives them the ability to deal with net neutrality complaints -- even (surprisingly) demanding that they respond to such complaints within 90 days. Another amendment being considered would basically require fairness in any tiers the telcos put together.

In other words, if they offer a high speed/high QoS tier for their own voice or video offering, they would have to offer that same tier to other voice and video services. While there's still plenty of time to have this mucked up, this may be a reasonable compromise at this point."
