TeleFrieden: Terminating ISP Monopolies and the Similar Harm to Edge Providers and End Users
TeleFrieden: Terminating ISP Monopolies and the Similar Harm to Edge Providers and End Users: "I do not understand the possible FCC emphasis on upstream edge providers. Perhaps the drafters seek to structure an order that resonates with the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals examination of potential discrimination to edge providers. But the court also endorsed the FCC’s view that retail ISPs providing the last mile delivery can operate as terminating monopolies. Applying an emphasis on this market power in the last mile delivery, both edge providers and end users suffer when retail ISPs engage in some types of discrimination." 'via Blog this'
