FCC Now Open to Regulating Mobile Broadband

As more and more smart phones proliferate causing more and more to use mobile networks as their gateway to the Internet, should net neutrality would applied to cellular networks? As recently as last spring, the FCC thought no, but in response to a growing chorus of protest, the FCC is reexamining their position. The FCC is changing their perspective in response to comments from Internet companies like Google and cable companies like Comcast. With LTE networks in place, mobile networks are quickly becoming a substitute for internet users who are either on the go and would rather not allocate money for fixed broadband services. In this sort of environment, why should be mobile be exempt from regulation? This week the FCC held a roundtable discussion addressing net neutrality should apply to mobile broadband.
