The FCC plans to vote on net neutrality in late February, a move that will spur a series of legal challenges from telcos and industry groups on one of the key policy issues that will govern how Internet traffic is delivered to consumers.
Republican Congressional leaders are proposing a new plan that could prevent service providers from giving priority for some websites over others, reports The Washington Post, citing unnamed industry officials close to the plans.
Verizon sent a letter to the FCC this week saying the government can't regulate the interconnection deals the company strikes with third-party content providers like Netflix.
Verizon has implemented what it says is the first office application (FOA) of Ciena's 200G technology over about 200 miles on its long-haul production network between Boston and New York.
Verizon Enterprise Solutions has won a multi-year agreement with Marriot International to deploy its cloud-hosted voice solution that was specifically designed for the hospitality industry.
Verizon Enterprise Solutions continues to play into the bring-your-own-cloud mentality by now carrying its Secure Cloud Interconnect (SCI) service over the HP Helion Managed Cloud Service and the Salesforce Customer Success Platform.
Verizon has launched its latest salvo in the net neutrality debate, saying that the FCC has enough authority to enforce paid prioritization, blocking and throttling today without having to reclassify service providers under Title II regulation.
Apparently net neutrality will have an impact on Verizon's future investments--much as it will for other telcos--Verizon CFO Fran Shammo has clarified.
Carriers sometimes tout the maximum speeds their networks can deliver to subscribers. T-Mobile US, for example, claims that customers are seeing real-world peak downlink speeds of up to 145 Mbps in markets where it has deployed at least 15x15 MHz of spectrum for LTE. But how do the carriers really stack up when it comes to maximum speeds?
Verizon may still be seeing slow growth in the enterprise space, but it's starting to see some potential light at the end of the tunnel that could bring it back into profitability over the next year.
