SNL: FCC's Wheeler: T-Mobile's 'Binge On' no threat to net neutrality | SNL: ""I think that it's clear in the open Internet order that we said we are pro-competition and pro-innovation," he said. "Clearly, [Binge On] meets both of those criteria. It's highly innovative and highly competitive."
Wheeler added that he now "chuckle[s]" at the doomsaying that preceded the net neutrality vote earlier this year, which maintained that wireless and wireline broadband providers would have to seek permission for any new innovation or offering.
Wheeler added that the FCC will be "watching the Binge On product, keeping an eye on it" to ensure that it stays in keeping with the open Internet order's general conduct standard, which holds that carriers may not unreasonably interfere with the connection between an edge provider and a consumer.
It was this element of the rules that troubled Republican Commissioners Ajit Pai and Michael O'Rielly, as they noted during a separate press conference." 'via Blog this'
