(Image: Greg Stotelmyer)INDIANAPOLIS – This is the last day the Federal Communication Commission is taking public comments on a controversial plan that could change how the Internet works. The idea of letting some deep-pocketed broadband providers divide bandwidth into “fast lanes” and “slow lanes” and charge more for the faster speeds has faced a public backlash. Timothy Karr is senior director with the group Free Press.“An organization called the Sunlight Foundation looked at public comments to the FCC and there have been more than a million already,” Karr says. “They found 99 percent of those comments were in support of net neutrality, so this is an issue where the public is strongly unified.”Two years ago, in opposition to legislation involving copyrights, many websites took part in a partial blackout of the Internet, with some, like Wikipedia, shutting down completely for a day. Last Wednesday there was a symbolic slowdown in protest of the threat to a free and open Internet.A national coalition of rural broadband advocates, the Rural Broadband Policy Group, wants the FCC to treat Internet access like phone service as a common carrier, what’s known as a Title II service, says Whitney Kimball Coe coordinator, National Rural Assembly, Center for Rural Strategies.“It would uphold net neutrality and secondly, it would close the ‘digital divide,’” Coe says.By “digital divide,” she explains, the FCC currently considers Internet access a Title I service which means there are fewer regulations for Internet providers. Coe says that means providers don’t have to “build out in rural places,” leaving some people with bad service or no service.Coe says of the 19-million Americans who don’t have Internet access, more than 14-million are rural Americans.“Rural America already feels like it’s out of sync with that sort of American idea of equal opportunity,” says Coe. “In the political sector, rural America feels like it’s not being heard.”Coe says that leaves a simple message to the FCC from rural broadband advocates, “Don’t break the Internet before rural America gets it.”Mary Kuhlmanlast_img read more

first_imgShare StumbleUpon OPAP delivers on Athens children’s hospital CSR projects July 6, 2020 Share Better Collective Spotlight: How Betarades.gr is driving engagement through YouTube July 30, 2020 Related Articles This month’s Better Collective Spotlight explores the “excellent opportunity” for Better Collective to build on the relationship it has with online bettors in Greece through launching the Greek Bookmaker Awards in partnership with Betarades.The 12-category awards night (23 January 2020) will be hosted by Betarades, a Better Collective-owned provider of sports insights and free betting tips in Greece.Better Collective has confirmed that the concept for such an awards night could be scaled across other key markets.The early signs are good as, in just the first week, almost 1,000 Greek players cast their vote for the marquee Best Bookmaker in Greece Players’ Choice award. Each of the award categories, said Better Collective’s Head of Strategic Events Shona ODonnell, have been created after extensive user research with Greek users. “The awards represent an excellent opportunity for us to build on the relationship we have with the Greek online bettors and help them navigate the market,” she explained.“We want to ensure that we are rewarding the recipients for their efforts that directly matter to the bettors in the market. “From a strategic level, this supports the values already practiced by Betarades and Better Collective, as it is a platform that is built to empower the bettors.“And from a business perspective, the awards also serve as an opportunity to build on the relationships we have with partners in the market.”The launch arrives in tandem with a breakthrough moment for the betting market in Greece, whose government passed a bill to regulate the country’s online framework last month.Better Collective is in favour of a healthy regulatory system, said ODonnell, but she admitted that the project was in the pipeline before the long overdue regulation was passed.“Greece has been, and continues to be, a big priority market for Better Collective,” she said. “Here Betarades is the leading sports betting affiliate and a trusted brand among thousands of Greek tipsters. It therefore made sense for us to launch the awards in this market.”ODonnell concluded: “BC Thessaloniki, which operates the Betarades brand, has played an instrumental part in developing and marketing the awards night. In fact, it is a product of strong collaborative work across various departments and offices within Better Collective.“The initial dialogue and feedback we have received has been extremely positive. We look very much forward to celebrating the best operators in the Greek market.” Submit Better Collective cautious on quick recovery as COVID drags growth momentum August 25, 2020last_img read more
