    Fight for Privacy of Internet Users Internet Privacy Consumer Watchdog has maintained that it will continue pressing state regulators Congress and the courts to ensure privacy of Internet users is upheld by service providers Their resolve came a few days after the Federa l Communications Commission FCC overruled its petition seeking online privacy protections at online platforms like Google and Facebook Consumer Watchdog is convinced that FCC took the wrong decision since they are not asking for total regulation of the Internet but privacy of users In a press statement they said the move leaves Internet users at high risks of losing their private information to unauthorized parties Consumer Watchdog s Privacy Project Director John M Simpson said they will not be slowed down by the FCC decision and will leave to it that internet users are well protected We believe the FCC has the authority to enforce Internet privacy protections far more broadly than they have opted to do and are obviously disappointed by this decision The new Section 222 rules once enacted will apply to companies like Comcast Time Warner AT T and other ISPs Ironically much of the personal data gathered by those companies which will be regulated is the same information gathered by companies like Google and Facebook whose privacy invasive practices won t be covered Consumers data will be protected in one place but it will be a Wild West anything goes atmosphere when it comes to giant Internet companies Simpson added Requiring that Do Not Track requests be honored is a simple way to give people necessary control of their information and is in no way an attempt to regulate the content of the Internet Consumer Watchdog expects to take an active role in the FCC rulemaking that will create Section 222 privacy rules covering the broadband Internet access providers Their petition cited FCC authority under another section of the law Share this Facebook Google Tumblr Twitter More Print

before a state legislature committee that is focused on broadband In his submission Casartelli said they plan to roll out the service across McCall and Idaho in November then proceed to Boise and

    Communications Commission FCC has already given Verizon a temporary exemption from rules that provide for voice over to accommodate hearing and speech impaired users It is just last month when the company wrote to FCC seeking the exemption but the delayed reply had them worried Finally the confirmation has come along and they can now prepare to fight it out for customers with other established providers in the business of Wi Fi calling It will not be easy for Verizon considering they will have to cover much ground AT T Mobility Sprint and T Mobile US are some of the carriers in America that have already launched their Wi Fi calling and have reported positive feedback in the market But they are all not offering the same service but have gone for uniqueness AT T Mobility currently supports only the recent versions of Apple s iPhone with Wi Fi calling iPhone 6 6 Plus 6s and 6s Plus while Sprint and T Mobile US offer the service on some Android phones as well RCRWireless News reported Verizon is yet to give a formal statement concerning the direction that the rollout of this new service will take It leaves its customers guessing on when that will take place how it will be rolled out and whether calls will be free for users who pay for voice minutes In comparison Sprint and AT T Mobility have no charges for their WiFi calling service while T Mobile US makes simple calculations for its customers Whatever that Verizon is planning to do will remain a secret for now Share this Facebook Google Tumblr Twitter More Print Email Tweet Be the first to comment What do you think Posted

Verizon Wireless has officially announced that its low cost WiFi access to schools in Huntsville Alabama will be terminated effective November 30 In a statement Verizon said they have a long standing commitment to improve the lives of individuals and the communities they serve This includes providing students and educators access to affordable technology so as to enrich the learning experience In keeping with this commitment Verizon agreed to offer certain discounted services to the Huntsville City Schools The discounted services were intended to be used only by the school system Acting outside the scope of the agreement between Verizon and Huntsville City Schools the school system made the discounted services available to the general public the statement said in part But the company regretted that the ambitious initiative was no longer tenable but will still support those schools already in their scope While Verizon has notified the school system it will support only those lines within the scope of the agreement the company remains committed to supporting education in Huntsville and will continue to work in good faith with Huntsville City Schools to resolve the situation The local education administrators in Huntsville have already notified all stakeholders about the development In a statement published by local media a Huntsville school district s letter said We regret to inform you that your wireless service will terminate effective November 30 2015 This termination of service and any resulting inconvenience has resulted from the service provider Verizon Wireless Reliable sources said that Verizon was unhappy that most of the people who were from outside the area were capitalizing on the initiative which was against their policy In any case Verizon had the authority to have limitations to areas where the low cost WiFi service should cover and the decision they took was well within their mandate Predictably most of their customers are not happy with the move Letter from School District Dear Subscriber We regret to inform you that your wireless service will terminate effective November 30 2015 the Termination Date This termination of service and any resulting inconvenience has resulted from the service provider Verizon Wireless Verizon and its decision to discontinue its support of the program Needless to say this circumstance is unfortunate and we are disappointed by Verizon s decision particularly in light of the fact that Verizon publicly endorsed and applauded the Omnilynx program less than one year ago As of the Termination Date and in accordance with your terms of service you will no longer receive wireless services pursuant to the Omnilynx program and we will no longer accept payment s for such services Balances received in advance of service will be prorated and promptly refunded to you Thank you for your support of the OmniLynx program Verizon s Statement At Verizon we have a long standing commitment to improve the lives of individuals and the communities we serve This includes providing students and educators access to affordable technology to enrich the learning experience In keeping with this commitment

way faster than what they are experiencing now It must be mentioned that just because the company has not been providing its customers with such services doesn t mean that other companies have not been offering Gigabit speed Internet services to people in LA People in places such as Tennessee and Chattanooga have already been accessing these services via fiber optic cable Gigabit Fiber Already Available In LA Via Other ISPs Google s super fast Google Fiber services are already available in places like Kansas City and Utah among others and the company is also looking at expanding to other areas AT T on the other hand provides its AT T U Verse with GigaPower services to subscribers in Austin Texas and it is even considering extending these services to more markets in LA With such providers already in the picture many will argue that Time Warner may be far behind especially as it is planning to get Gigabit Internet service by 2016 The company says that its choice to upgrade Internets services is in response to a request made by the city of LA Time Warner has spent over a billion dollars over the last five years to improve its infrastructure and network services in LA Time Warner Is Prepared For The Future According to a representative of the company the network that the company has in place now is future proofed This means that the company will be able to deliver the promised high speed Internet services without having to dig up people s yards and streets to put in any additional networks in the future Time Warner plans to begin initial tests for the services next year Currently the company offers an Internet option that costs 65 for the first year of receiving top tier Internet services This gives the subscriber access to Internet speeds of 100 megabits

Legislation recently unveiled in California will require smart phones and other mobile devices to have what is referred to as a kill switch that will cause them to be inoperable if stolen or lost This means that if the bill is passed successfully from next year mobile devices shipped or sold to California will have to be manufactured with an anti theft device The move comes to sort out the problem of a rising number of smart phone thefts being experienced across the country Statistics have proven that smart phone thefts in California are now at an all time high The bill is said to be the first of its kind in the US Unfortunately the policy is facing some opposition from certain quarters For example The Wireless Association has expressed concerns that if the kill switch bill is passed it could pose serious risks for smart phone users in the future Fears Kill Switch Could Be Disabled By Hackers It gave an example of a situation whereby the system could be infiltrated by hackers whereby they could disable mobile phones and lock out users It offers a solution for this suggesting that a database of national stolen phones is set up The database would remove any stolen smart phones from the market thereby making it hard for unscrupulous people to unlock the phones and use them unlawfully The California legislators have also put smart phone manufacturers on notice asking them to come up with solutions to curb smart phone thefts by June 2014 According to the legislators the companies have to choose whether they want to be part of the problem or be part of the solution Data from the Federal Communications Commission shows that at least one in three robberies in the US involves phone theft The research from the agency shows that stolen or lost mobile phones many of them smart

landmark jury verdict in federal court on behalf of AT T s former employee Jack Gerundo The unanimous verdict brings to an end the age discrimination case against AT T Gerundo who was aged 66 at the time was terminated by AT T in connection with a surplus event that occurred in March of 2013 It resulted in many older employees losing their jobs Gerundo alleged that AT T had a plan to move older workers out of the company and replace them with younger workers by using a secret and fraudulent ratings rankings system He had worked for AT T and its predecessor IBM for 43 years Gerundo alleged that AT T kept younger and less qualified workers in his division including a 47 year old employee who had only been at the company for two years while terminating his employment for no legitimate reason The jury found that Gerundo s age was the determinative factor in AT T s decision to surplus him which resulted in the loss of his job and awarded him 370 000 in damages Laura C Mattiacci the lead trial attorney for Gerundo said that it took a tremendous amount of time and work to uncover the details of the discriminatory decision making process at AT T and believes the final judgment in the case should exceed 900 000 after the attorneys fees and costs incurred are accessed When asked for comment on the verdict Mattiacci said This case shows that when it comes to a jury trial no company not even AT T is above the law Caren N Gurmankin also of Console Law Offices assisted as the second chair trial attorney The case was heard in the U S District Court for the Eastern District

Legal FCC Defends Net Neutrality Rules in Court Net Neutrality Rules The Federal Communications Commission FCC was forced to head back to court and defend the net neutrality rules that have come under challenge from providers keen to overturn the broadband regulations That was the third time that FCC was appearing before a federal court to support the net neutrality laws In particular they have come under challenge over the set of regulations aimed at preventing favoritism on the internet Service providers have felt that FCC is being overprotective and that the action might end up undermining their operations It is under that understanding they have been pushing FCC to quash the rules or re negotiate afresh but they have stood their ground insisting on implementation To help customers understand that very well New York Times carried a guideline explaining some of the complexities that have seen the court case drag for long One of the top misunderstandings is on the real meaning of net neutrality They explained in a blog post It s a lousy name for the idea that traffic for all legal content on the Internet should be treated equally In practice that principle has taken shape in F C C regulations that bar Internet service providers from blocking certain websites or making them download slower or faster than others Another point of contention that has come out clearly in the case is how different the new rules are from the old ones There are those who argue that there is nothing new with them but New York Times explained The rules ban blocking and throttling of internet content They also prohibit paid prioritization the practice by web companies of paying Internet service providers for priority delivery of their sites to consumers The biggest difference in this set of rules is that the F C C categorized broadband as a utility along with telephone services under a statute known as Title II Share this Facebook Google Tumblr Twitter More Print Email Tweet
