It seems that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will be rolling back its previous stand regarding Net Neutrality, which could have a significant impact on how people (and business establishments) consume the Internet.
A week ago, Republican supporters consumed Super Bowl level loads at the Republican National Convention (RNC) held in the city of Cleveland in Ohio. This week, the same thing is likely to happen in the city of Philadelphia in Pennsylvania, where the Democratic National Convention will take place. Wireless carriers, however, are ready to handle all that mobile data.
Now that the United States Court of Appeals has upheld the net neutrality rules imposed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) over a year ago, advocates of those rules are demanding that the agency take immediate action in addressing zero rating deals offered by various broadband and wireless companies.
Count this is another win for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in its long time bid to make the information superhighway a fair and open place for every consumer and business entity.

During the recently concluded Mobile World Congress held in the city of Barcelona in Spain, there was much talk about 5G technology and how it might shape up the mobile world in the years to come.

While other companies took the opportunity to promote their latest tech products and services during this year’s Consumer Electronics Show held in the city of Las Vegas in Nevada, AT&T looked to the future instead, talking about smart cities, connected cars, and glucose monitors that could turn into a reality in the next few years.
Both Facebook and Google are at the top of their games, with Facebook the undisputed king of social media while Google lording over the search engine arena. Now, as both companies are trying to expand beyond their respective milieus, some conflict was bound to happen as their interests begin to overlap with each other’s. Of course, as this intensifies, perhaps the first casualty would be their business relationship -- everybody knows that Facebook’s mobile app for the Android platform is currently available at the search giant’s Play Store.
The biggest social media platform in the planet is preparing to officially release the business version of itself to companies around the world. After being quietly tested for the fast few quarters, Facebook at Work is expected to be deployed in the coming months sometime next year.
