ISPs Have A Piece Of The Pai

This week Dennis and Joel discuss two major ISPs and the problems they are having with consumers in New York and Ohio. There is a bit of self congratulations as the media seem to be agreeing with a lot of what Joel and Dennis have been saying about the new direction of the FCC.

  • I am really enjoying your podcast. Yes, I'm subscribed in iTunes and left a 5-star review.

    You did a good job explaining why we need FCC regulation. I would just add that one of the reasons competition alone is not a good enough regulator is because of the barriers for new players to enter the market are so high. Google Fiber is a good example.
