NATIONAL BROADBAND PLAN

 

Chairman Genachowski’s speech at
NARUC yesterday

 

FCC

 

First, a moment of nostalgia for an
opportunity missed:

 

TechNet’s 100/100 Initiative - 2002

"A 100 meg is just a dream," Qwest
Communications International Inc
Chief Executive Edward Mueller
told Reuters.  "We couldn't afford it." 

 

"First, we don't think the customer
wants  that.  Secondly, if (Google
has) invented some technology,
we'd love to partner with them,"
Mueller added.

Ars Technica

 

“First signs of Broadband Plan scale-
back include subtle dig at FCC prede-
cessor”

 

(That’s just absurd.  Genachowski’s
comparison of broadband to electricity
– with which I agree 100% -- is hardly
a “subtle dig” at Comm’r  Copps.  In
fact, Comm’r Copps often makes the
same comparison.  -JB)
