Marketplaces Nova Salvo in California is here with more David. This is a big deal, given how divisive this saga has been Silicon Valley companies versus Telecom giants. This started at the beginning of the Trump administration in 2017, when the Federal Communications Commission repealed net neutrality rules Now these were Obama era rules that said Internet service providers the Comcast the Verizon's of the world. Can't favor data streams from some online sources over others, and also that they can't block content as long as that content is legal well after the FCC's moved to get rid of these rules, which was strongly opposed by Silicon Valley, California Enacted its own net neutrality standards. That wasn't 2018. The rules have been challenged in court. Ever since. Now, a judge has decided finally that California can go ahead. Right. So a California law think this neutrality approach spreads. Well, that's the goal lot of net neutrality advocates hope that as California went, so would other states. Now they're pushing again in Washington because the FCC soon will be in Democratic hands again once Biden and nominates a chair and it gets approved by the Senate. And telecom industry groups, meanwhile, are looking to Congress. They want a nationwide law to settle this issue once and for all, not a patchwork state by state approach. All right? No,.

"Us back around to what I was. Talking about heading into the news Now. Yesterday, the city of Charlotte held a news conference. Ah press Conference on mayor via Lyles is called to local businesses to participate in the mayor's youth employment program. 2021 marking the 35th anniversary of this upward mobility program. So the mayor made some remarks and talked about that initiative. And then we had an interesting moment as a bread. Jensen was one of the reporters on this. Virtual news conference call, Brett said he had a question but took it in a different direction. Our next question will go to Brett Jensen. Go ahead, Bret. Thanks, Cory And thanks, Madam Mayor for doing this today. I'm sorry. I need to ask you something a little off topic. If that's okay, Mayor. I'd like to ask you about the situation involving the homeless situation in tent city last week. Seemed to be a lot of angst going on between the county manager and the city manager and just wondering, Have you spoken to the Kennedy managers since then? And are there any things that you're trying to put together to make sure something like 10 City, with all the rats and infestation doesn't happen again. Brent, if you know me after all the years that I spent on the idea that housing for everyone in Charlotte is important if you know how much we have invested over the past calendar year with the pandemic and homelessness, services and opportunities, I don't believe that there is the anything that you would find are any other community. Especially after reading articles across this country about the struggles that people are having between agencies. I think that we continue to be a model. I want you to know how much this city has committed. It's overall we spent over $35 million in efforts to prevent homelessness. In addition to that we spent over $50 million in rent and utility payments to prevent homelessness. So I take this very seriously. I think every member every elected official on the county commission in the City Council, and perhaps it's okay to feel a little bit frustrated by things that are very, very difficult to deal with. You know if we have a tent cities because we have an issue with chronic homelessness and chronic homelessness is one of the most difficult things to address. So I think the other communities have done some of this work. There's no one role model for it. But there's other places that have addressed the idea of how do we provide mental health services? How do we have have substance abuse services? Those of the social services that people need and then what the city has to do is to a Star sheltering community with providing the physical infrastructure so that people can have a space so we are committed to this and anyone in this community. Has walked by and help with food or shelter in any regard. I want you to know is mayor of this city. I am so grateful and appreciative for the effort and that we're going to continue to work. Hardest for the least of us all the time. Thank you for the question. Okay, well, that will do it for this afternoon. Mayor Lau. Thank you for your time, Caleb's and Maya and that's how it ended. I was talking to Brett late yesterday, and the video of this is on the city of Charlotte, Facebook Page. S so you can see how things abruptly ended. But this was again a mayor Lyle's news conference on the mayor's youth employment program. Jensen asked that question towards the Well, obviously towards the end, But it was after a good bit of discussion about the main point, And at that point, they seemed to pull the plug on the news conference don't know how much longer it would have gone after that. If things that say, had stayed on the main plan subject, But that was yesterday and more to come on this. I'm sure later this morning and Ah lot of people have been wondering what the mayor's thoughts extended were on what happened last week with the whole tent city. Story. So there you go. A little bit of elaboration, although I don't think she planned on doing that yesterday, But Brett Jensen was part of the news conference and Esso their Ugo Newstalk 11 10 9 to 93 wbtv at Fivethirtyeight.

They had were told the craziest stories. You'd ever wanna hear trying to get their application in some of them. We ended up faxing in in in in to get an in Somehow to handwrite it. You know and do paper applications. I mean it was. It's so challenging. One of those tribes as douglas indian association near juneau kamal lint off says the trip was happy to get assistance. We had no clue. You know what this really was. And then no clue on how to how we manage it or even get started We had probably a couple of different places contact us and we kinda jumped on board with that one stinking. I was all we needed to do. Some of the applications overlap the douglas tribes applications for coverage in an area also claimed by central council of clinton haida indian tribes. Overlapping claims are being negotiated.

But many proponents including jordan thompson confederated salem in kootenai tribal member spoke on behalf of both bills are believed that the first bill we heard today was kind of like inviting everyone to the same backyard for a barbecue.

What they called true. Us history acknowledging olive montana's citizens and the harm of celebrating christopher columbus whose acts of genocide and crimes against native.

Wanna welcome Patrick DeHaan, The head of petroleum analysis that gasbuddy dot com was with us right now and who's ready or 16 W T. V and Patrick dissecting this a little bit. You know, we saw what happened in Texas. And here we are a week later, and I know in central Ohio Gas prices have jumped 20 plus sense. Yeah, You know, we've seen quite a bit of it already showing up at the pump. Now it's worth mentioning that gas President Columbus behave a little bit differently. They engage in what we call price cycling and so Where this all factors in well, first and foremost, the price of oil continues to go up. It has since early November late October. As the coronavirus situation continues to improve, Americans are filling up their tanks more often, and that has driven up oil prices. And now the Texas Cold weather last week, shutting down 20% of the nation's refining capacities and hands the jump at the pump we've already seen like you mentioned a 20 cents a gallon jump. In Columbus, on average compared to a week ago. Now to 64 a gallon were paying almost 40 cents more than we were a year ago on it's probably not going to get a whole lot better. We probably will see prices this summer very close to where they were in 2018 and 2019. And for those that don't remember. No. One of 18 and 2019 featured prices in the summer. In the mid number $2 downrange. In fact, 2018. We had 2 99 at the high point, so hopefully we can avoid that $3 Mark. No kidding. Patrick Patrick DeHaan of gasbuddy dot com with his Patrick, You know you mentioned a little bit about the seasons the spring and summer. How long can we expect it to be at this point? Are we Are we talking the next year at 2 70 to 80 close to three. Well, it's really going to be contingent on if OPEC responds by increasing well production, they, you know, cut cut cut last year because of the drop in demand, But now they really haven't increased production. They'll be talking next week at their meeting, perhaps discussing that, but At this point, global demand is recovering faster than supply and that's why it will prices have jumped until we can get supply to start catching up to the increase in demand. We may continue to kind of be in this jumpy atmosphere of prices going up rapidly. So, um, we won't set any records this year. We're far from that. But still, we're getting uncomfortable, especially if you consider a year ago. We're spending, you know. At one point in April last year, a dollar 51 was the average Oh, yeah, We'd love to have that back again for men right well, and I know last week because of the frozen tundra in Texas of poor Texas between the Houston shipping channel that was froze for a while, Patrick when it comes to the Keystone Project being killed. Will that have any effect on our prices? It will down the road. It's not today pipelines, Existing pipelines are running nowhere near capacity. The Keystone XL was going to be so big that it's one of those projects. That's you know, 5 10 years down the road. If we continue on this path of filling up our tanks, then it could be useful, But because we don't need the capacity demand is still lower than a year ago. That is something that is not in the short term, affecting prices. Like I said again, couple years down the road, it may enter into the equation, Patrick very informative. If someone wants to remora on on your work and your stuff, Where did they go to gasbuddy dot com. Where's a good place? Yeah, that's exactly it. If you want to really get into the nitty gritty of gas prices and all the mechanics going into it, the block would be a great way to start a great place to start. That's where, of course, we dissect. Everything. All the movements going on into Gaspard and boy do our listeners those that listen we love to dissect. So thank you, Patrick. Appreciate that. Have a have a good week, sir. Appreciate it.

Some tribes are getting help narrowing the digital divide

"Indian country. The proportion of households with high speed internet access has consistently lagged behind the rest of the us. There has been some work to improve things including an influx of federal funding. That's helped some tribes build their own broadband networks across the country.

Right at your. The network will also allow tribal police to issue tickets electrically from their vehicles and the tribal health department to do paperwork in the field. This is one of the first tribally controlled wireless networks to come out of a federal communications commission program that gave tribes across the us wireless spectrum licenses for free but tribes still have to build in pay for the infrastructure to broadcast high speed broadband.

"Right now. I wanna talk about the giant foam calls that are a curse for so many of us. And did you know that the feds at the there's an obscure agency called the fcc federal communications commission that It's obscure enough. It's amazing how many people find their way to complain to the fcc about all the junk phone calls they get and more than any other topic they ever get complaints about so now the fcc has issued yet another rule to try to crack down on all the phone calls and now trying to compel the nation's major phone companies to actually help because one of the dirty little secrets about it is there are ways. They profit from all the phone calls and now they're under a federal order to do things to limit the number jumped phone calls. You get but they're still going to continue. I mean how many times do you get that junk phone call about how your warranties expired on your car and you need to buy this that or the other piece of garbage fake extended warranty on your vehicle and the giant phone calls go on and on and on and on and you think about how many junk phone calls that. People got in twenty twenty from political campaigns. Those are protected speech. Those will continue when we get into our next election cycle. That thank goodness isn't till next year. Had enough of that right. actually. I say next year. Yeah next year. We're back in another political season. But for the meantime those will slow down but the other ones. It'll be a while before it's really clear if the new federal initiative reduces the number of junk phone calls you get but there are more and more tools to help you with that

How the COVID-19 Pandemic Shed Light on the Digital Divide

"Today I'm happy to have with me two excellent guests to address I. Think a very significant issue that we've known about for a long time, but has become especially poignant during the pandemic, not as the digital divide. A lot of us have you know with some bumps along the way made a fairly smooth transition to living life onscreen. But there's a lot of folks out there who have not, and that is because they continue to be and before the pandemic, there were very large disparities between who had access to the types of tools necessary to live in this new virtual world and who had the. Skills and the background necessary to thrive world that looks like it will be more virtual in the future than in the past even when pandemic has passed the to talk about these trends, I've two terrific guests. Kimberly Bryant is the founder of Black Girls Code Jessica Rosenthal. Soul is a commissioner for the Federal Communications Commission and were I hope we will have a great robust discussion about these issues. Just, let me start with you the digital divide. It's very old term. It's been around a long time. What did we learn? That's knew about it from this pandemic. Well, thank you for having me ads on what's important now is that the digital divide has been exposed s pandemic. Because now, we see conclusively the hard truth that our nation's gapped in digital skills. Digital access is very real and very big. And if in Washington, we used to think about broadband Internet literacy as Nice to have this pandemic has proven that it is neat to have as a nation were online for school for education or work for health care for entertainment and so much more. We've got a recognize is that we are not going to live up to our civic and commercial potential. If we don't find a way to connect everyone in this country, you've talked about the homework gap as sort of like the analog to digital divide tell us about that and what we've learned about it and why it matters. Yes said being the before times before we are all in home there was this thing that was happening that I noticed, which was that teachers were increasingly assigning homework that require Internet access. But what I know from the FCC is that one in three households do not have broadband? and. So the kids who lived in those households in just fall into a digital divide they fell into a homework they could do their nightly schoolwork I mean when all of us were growing up, you know we need to paper and Pencil and a clean. Spot on the kitchen table around a desk, but you need Internet access now to successfully participate. In school and that digital divide on Homework Gab has just become clearer in this crisis we said millions of kids home and told them to go to virtual classrooms. But if you don't have Internet access, you're out of that virtual classroom and we know it because we've seen chilling pictures on social media of hid sitting outside of fast food restaurants with laptops just try to access free Wifi signal so. They can go to online school and I just think in the United States. Of America we should be able to come up with policies that closed at hallmark gap. So no child is offline. Thanks can let me turn to you for a moment obviously One of the things we know about the digital divide is that it's more pronounced among certain historically disadvantaged groups, including people of Color and women. Black Girls Code I believe was founded to address both those saints tell us a little bit about your organization if you could just to start out absolutely on. Thank you again for having me on black holes was down right here in the bay area where I am today in our goal is said, is to address this issue around diversity inclusion, any equity in the technology landscape our focus is really to target girls Monday represented communities so African American. Students Hispanic Students, American. Students who are traditionally disenfranchised from Tech rears which actually pay their are look at content can change the trajectory of families in. It's not communities. We do that by really interesting girls as. Young as seven all the way through eighteen plus the skills and technology and teaching them about coding robotics game development. CETERA. So really try to introduce them all the different assets of the technology industry and also get them skills that allows them to either be creators, innovators, or the leaders of many of its expertise may see in the future

Pandemic Relief Money To Help Narrow Digital Divide On Native American Reservations

"America's digital divide is especially stark on reservations where broadband does often unaffordable or just not available federal pandemic relief money as providing an opportunity to narrow the divide Aaron Bolton reports. Of Small Mountain on the flathead Indian reservation in western Montana sits a brand new one, hundred and eighty foot cell tower confederated sailors and Kootenai tribe infrastructure administrator. Chuck. Reese says in the coming months, it will help Ron can't wireless hyphen Internet's over roughly eighty percent of the reservation to give you an idea of we're bringing fiber optic right in here to all the way up this mountain. I missed his first class connective nearly half of local residents here have no access to high-speed Internet recess. This change will now allow them to take advantage of online education and telehealth and give tribal police connectivity. Ours in February the Federal Communications Commission offered Free Broadband, wireless spectrum, capable of broadcasting high speed wireless Internet tribes initially, not many applied because to make the equipment on those towers really robust. You need a healthy amount of power to the and strong fiber Jeff Blackwell as with Amarin Risk Management and native owned Insurance Company that helps tribes improve digital access within five years. Tribes have to pay to build towers and run fiber optic cable and other utilities to actually make these wireless networks reality. Each project could cost hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars after Congress passed eight billion dollars in federal corona virus relief funding for tribes. In late March tribes submitted more than four hundred applications for the free wireless. Bank trump is it's worthy took this step for broadband purposes. But also utilizing a mechanism that recognizes that placing tribal nations, themselves and the center of the regulatory process has a chance of significance success. However, Blackwell says many tribal lands weren't included in that the F. C. C. will need to make more spectrum available to tribes in the future to shrink the digital divide in Indian country. In the meantime, those like blackwell will be focused on helping tribes currently in the build process succeed

Newt Minow on the Presidential Debates

"Hi everybody I'm John Donvan and this is intelligence squared US part of our discourse disruptor series and what we're going to be focusing on. Our the coming presidential debates they are coming sort of starting September twenty-ninth, the first of three. And of course, because everything's different this year, the debates are going to feel different almost certainly going to be. In some fashion remote, maybe the debaters, the candidates won't even be in the same place. There's only going to be one moderator. We're not gonNA live audience because you can't have that many people in one space in this dangerous time. Also what we have going on as a conversation simultaneously with which is focused on, maybe we shouldn't have debates maybe it's time to wrap up that whole institution and go back to a time of no debates. And when I say go back did you know that for most of American history this institution that we know is the debates did not exist that for most of our history, there were no debates and did you know that once we started having debates that in the first series, there was a remote debate the candidates were not in the same place and there was no live audience. And there was only one moderator. So maybe things are circling back. There's a lot of history here and we are interested in that because. At intelligence squared, we are very interested in history and we are also very very interested in debates. So that's what we want to focus on and we want to focus. In this case of discourse disrupters with an excellent source of information about the past and the present and potentially the future, and that is a gentleman named Newton Minot and Newton Minnow is an old friend of intelligence squared us and he's also known as the father of American presidential debates and we'll talk a little bit about why that is. But first, let's bring Newt Minnow into the conversation newt. Thank you so much for for joining us. It's really a pleasure to be back in communication with you. John I. LOOK FORWARD TO I. Admire your work or the intelligence squared very very much. Well, thank you. Can I ask before we start everything else I find it interesting that for folks who don't know you have lived through some very, very disruptive times and this one in your nineties a comes at the after a long series of other adventures. I mean, you have lived through I, think twenty three presidential elections. At this point, you have seen twelve cycles of the debates that we're GONNA be talking about. You lived through the major disruption called World War to. Use served overseas you went into politics You're an aide to ally Stevenson who ran for president does the Democratic nominee twice in the nineteen fifties. So you saw two elections then you joined John Kennedy's administration and you saw the trauma of his assassination and then you were very close friends with Robert Kennedy and you saw his assassination and lived through that and and now this. Just just to take a moment is, is this disruption different in dramatically in kind from all of the others you've seen so far? Well, I lived through all that, but then I had another. Exposure to politics with Obama, the because Michelle worked for our firm and and Barack came to be a summer associate and they fell in love and so we got. So we had another round politics with with with the OBAMAS. About that but all throughout, I would say the last fifty years of this you have been intersecting with this institution that we call the presidential debates take us back to nineteen, fifty, nine, nineteen, sixty, where as an aide to at least Stevenson. You actually were involved in the idea of pushing forward the idea that there there. He did not get to take part in that kind of debate but was interested in enemies interested because you are suggesting it. You have a very strong faith in the idea of technology. To be a force for good and for communication and you saw television as this, you're right as this big thing happening in the sixties. Well, it actually was in the fifties in when. In in the fifty six. Presidential, election. The incumbent President President Eisenhower. Having a heart attack. And there was a big question whether he would be able to run again. And I suggested to adly that instead of the candidates. Rushing. All over the country and speaking crowds that that. Now, we have television which reached every home. And that instead of traditional debate that. There'd be a series of joint appearances or debates between the presidential candidates. As they considered that his advisors thought it was a gimmick and it was he never suggested it. The Federal Communications Act when it was originally passed during the new deal. Required equal time for political candidates. The law said section three fifteen FA broadcaster gives or sells time to one candidate. At must give ourselves time to the opponent on the same basis. As a result that was interpreted by the Federal Communications Commission to mean any use of the air by a candidate including being in a news program. So the broadcasters were pressing to get news programs exempt. From the equal time requirement and they finally succeeded in the late fifties. But debates were not regarded as a news program.

He announced this sort of like off the cuff last night that he was about to make a statement and issue an executive order because he was mad that twitter at an an addendum to his tweet. About how mail? Mail in ballots are like all fraudulent and this is the first time twitter did that. Because they've been receiving like Meka Brzezinski is basically just been saying. Please stop accusing my husband of murderer trump at Jack. Please stop him to lead his account way and they're adding this kind of like this fact checking feature trump now and he is very mad about it and Is Response To. This is reading from these account era says President Donald Trump is expected to order a review of a law that has protected twitter facebook and Google from being responsible for the material posted by their users according to a draft executive order an assertion me. The situation news of the order comes after trump. Threatened to shut down websites. He accused of stifling conservative voices. Following a dispute with twitter after the company decided to tag trump's tweets with about unsubstantiated claims of fraud in mail in voting with a warning prompting readers to fact check the posts the order a draft copy of which was seen by Reuters could change before it's finalized on Wednesday officials said trump signing executive order on social media companies. Thursday the executive order would require the Federal Communications Commission's to propose and clarify regulations under section thirty to thirty of the Communications Decency. Act A federal law largely exempting online platforms for legal liability for the material. Their users post such changes could expose tech companies to more lawsuits.

Twitter and Trump raise stakes in fight over free speech in America

"I'm Anthony Davis. Donald TRUMP threaten social media companies with new regulation or even shuttering on Wednesday after twitter added. Fact checks two of his tweets. The president's can't unilaterally regulate or close the companies and any effort would likely require action by Congress he's administration shelved a proposed executive order empowering the Federal Communications Commission to regulate technology companies citing concerns. It wouldn't pass legal muster but that didn't stop trump from angrily issuing strong warnings trump. The historically prolific tweet of Political Bob's falsehoods and blasts claimed on twitter early Wednesday that tech giant's silence conservative voices. We will strongly regulate or close them down before we can ever allow this to happen. He tweeted. He repeated his unsubstantiated claim which sparked his latest showdown with Silicon Valley that expanding mail in voting would be free for all on cheating forgery and the theft of ballots. Trump has previously stated that postal voting would prevent. Republicans from ever getting into office again hence trump has created a false narrative to support his desire to curb vote by mail. Twitter was having none of it. Trump and his campaign had lashed out Tuesday. After twitter added a warning phrase to to of trump's tweets that called mail in ballots fraudulent and predicted that mailboxes will be robbed. Among other things under the tweets. There is now a link reading. Get the facts about ballots.

The Broadband GapWhos Not Online in America Today?

"Uh-huh connections don't just sort of fly through the air given how we operate and how we are so frequently connected to the Internet. Those of us who live in communities that have strong connections. We sort of take that for granted. You don't have to think about the time of day that you're getting online whether or not you need to kick someone else off in order to finish your homework for communities that either have slow connections or no connections. That's a normal part of life that's Katherine dewitt who manages Pews Broadband Research Initiative broadband is one of the main ways that Americans access the Internet. And sometimes maybe take for granted. Welcome to after the fact for the Pew Charitable Trusts. I am Dan La- Duke and we hope you're well during these days at home. Due to the corona virus pandemic many of us can read the news. Maybe join a virtual exercise class. Watch an endless number of movies all because we're connected to the Internet. We may not always think about how essential that connection is but millions of Americans without reliable connections. Think about it all the time and that brings us to our data point for this episode. Twenty one million. There are twenty one million Americans who don't have access to broadband Internet according to the Federal Communications Commission. And depending on your definition of connectivity that number could even be higher I spoke to Katherine Dewitt about the challenges for those who live on the wrong side of the digital gap. Catherine welcome who should say we're speaking to each other over broadband Internet right now and that you study broadband connectivity gaps and how we can expand access for communities around the country the twenty one million. That's our data point on the low side right. The Federal Communications Commission estimates that at least twenty one million Americans don't have access to the Internet across the country but including those for Microsoft put that number as high as one hundred and sixty two million. Let's define what broadband means for people? I mean a lot of people access the Internet only through phones. So could you sort of lay out? What broadband at its best is supposed to look like in do for people the Federal Communications defined broadband as high speed reliable internet at speeds of twenty five megabits per second download and three megabits per second upload? You can get those connections via fiber wireless satellite DSL or cable okay. That's a lot of technocrats. Speak but what you do need to know about your connection. Is that that speed that number that we talk about matters and it matters as it relates to public funding for broadband and of course we measure. Someone's connection the FCC says that for one user on one device you can make do with just about anything including streaming videos from services with that speed. That's up to twenty five megabits per second but as soon as you start adding other users or you have multiple users on multiple devices trying to send e-mail while someone else's surfing the Internet while someone else is trying to watch an instructional video. Your needs for speed drastically increase. What do we know about like geographically where these Pockets OF PEOPLE ARE. Who Don't have service. I mean for might be somewhere. Where populations disperse is it. Generally that is all over based on the FCC's data twenty one million of unconnected Americans. That's overwhelmingly effects rural populations. But we know both through our research and Through anecdotal evidence this problem affects communities of all types of all locations all across the country that means urban communities it means suburban Communities Immune to rural and remote communities some of those communities of those types that I just listed have excellent connections and there are many urban communities who have very high speed Internet But they are communities of both types that either have slow internet or they have no Internet connection at all. When we say that people don't have access are in trying to come up with these numbers is that because the fiber or the cable Doesn't run to their residents or does it also include folks who just can't afford it. 'cause it's not not cheap. Each month can accidents. Don't just fly through the air given how we operate and how we are so frequently connected to the Internet. Those of us who live in communities that have strong connections. We sort of take that for granted but for those communities who don't have the connections right now that can be for several reasons and it's complicated not just because we're talking about the geographic diversity of where can activity is lacking or talking about multiple policy areas that deal with multiple levels of government. But perhaps more importantly were talking about infrastructure and the Internet is a very physical network. It may be that It's just too expensive to connect to some of these rural communities that have low population density just doesn't make for a good business case for for profit companies in other cases it is because Folks can't afford the connection. It's too expensive. It's outside of their monthly budget. But I think what's interesting about? This current situation is how we are really seeing that relevance piece play out because our community centers are closed our schools our libraries are places where people can access the services that they need every day. Well now they can't go to those places. People used to rely on public libraries or fast food Restaurants down the street from their homes further Internet access with those spots not available. What are the temporary solutions? That are are coming forth. Well we're seeing things like Wi fi on buses and those buses parked in a school and library parking lot so folks can drive up and get online if they need to We're seeing libraries in schools. Also run out. Hotspots and laptops were also seeing to the federal government responds so typically those schools and libraries that have received FCC funding are not allowed to have those wireless networks on Outside of operating hours but the Federal Communications Commission in late March adjusted the restrictions for when those networks are accessible the state of Washington. Right now is thinking of setting F- They're calling them dry flies. So you drive up To a mobile hotspot and you hang out in your car for as long as you need to be there and then you keep on going and the next person uses it there. Bandaids There needed BANDAIDS. They're necessary for the situation that we're in right now and it speaks to the need for solutions that way folks don't have to rely on these backup options at their libraries or schools or community centers in order to get online and for kids. You know in order to simply do their homework.

"federal communications commission" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York

"Radio, California, governor Jerry Brown, signed a state net neutrality Bill this week which promptly prompted a lawsuit. From the Justice department announcing the Bill earlier this year state Senator Scott wiener explained what it's all about collectively. This will be the most comprehensive and the strongest on net neutrality protection in the United States where we are restoring what we've lost when Donald Trump's FCC obliterated net neutrality. Matthew shutting helmet litigation analyst for Bloomberg intelligence. He joins us now for more on this story from our Bloomberg ninety nine one studios in Washington. And Matt what does the California law d- do? Yes. Speeders affectively restores the version of net neutrality rules that the Obama era FCC in two thousand fifteen had put on the books. Those those rules are the same rules that that Trump administration in December of last year tore down and took off the books and the federal government's lawsuit. Does what? So the federal government's lawsuit basically says comes after California and says, no this is not the kind of area that states are allowed to adopt their own rules for the Federal Communications Commission, a federal body acted late last year to say that we're going to adopt a light-touch regulatory framework for internet service here, and we're going to supersede the states, we're not going to allow California or other. For states to to adopt a patchwork of of regulation, and so now, we saw California adopted immediately. The Trump administration ran into corden said, no, we the FCC spoke on this issue last year. You can adopt regulations like this. So does the Justice department suit seek to block the California now? Seek a stay. Yeah. That's the first step. So so the immediate action is asking the court enter a preliminary injunction to hit pause, and because right now, we have still litigation going on about the Trump administration decision to tear down those rules and to supersede the states that's been briefed here in DC the DC circuit court of appeals. It's actually being briefed right now. It's scheduled for oral argument on February first of next year. We'll take probably the court three to four months to decide after that at least. And so that's the first step is is the Trump administration coming in against this California law and asking the judge to hit pause, don't let states come in and start adopting their own laws. We gotta I we need to find out if the federal move is lawful does the Justice department have a point here. The states do not regulate interstate commerce and the internet is interstate is interstate. Yeah. I think it's ultimately going to be an uphill battle for the states to to win as a legal matter. They have some some strong arguments to say that that the the Federal Communications itself, maybe shouldn't be in the business of preempting of declaring that its rules are superior to the states. They're serious legal questions. Whether the FCC itself has that power, but that's sort of different from the larger question that you touched on this is likely interstate commerce, and it's hard to imagine the internet functioning all that effectively if the rules of the road change as internet traffic passes over state lines or into even if you go down to the city or county level, if a state can do it could it could a city or county start to impose its own rules. It starts to be giving give the industry a pretty powerful argument that this is not the way that the inter- internet can function. There's a pretty strong. Constitutional argument under the commerce clause that that just doesn't work on the action in Sacramento by the by the feds has a federal judge scheduled the hearing on this is he going to hear this this week. We are at the very beginning stages. I think we'll have more of a sense on timing in the next couple of weeks here, but the law's set to take effect on January first. So there's not a lot of time to to work out how they're going to brief and decide. A potential stay that the Trump administration's looking for here. So I I expect we'll see developments pretty quickly on that initial question. Should we pause that California law for now? So where does where where do the FCC changes to the Obama net neutrality laws? Stand have have they've been implemented while all this gets hashed out in. Whoa. Take your pick, of course. Right right now. A great question. So yes, the short answer is. Yes, right now, the deregulatory move by the Trump FCC is the law of the land. And and there are no net neutrality rules on the book at this point. The the lawsuits have been consolidated in the DC circuit court of appeals here. It's being briefed. Now set for argument's February one of next year. We should see a decision from from that courts, you know, June July was when you're gonna start looking fairly closely for it. I'm just curious. How did the companies in Silicon Valley feel about the state law? Did they support it? Yeah. So they've, you know, the internet association wrote, which represents groups like Google. Like other. Exactly, exactly. So they they've been big supporters of of net neutrality, generally. And so, and so I guess they've been backers of of of not neutrality. They're participating in the lawsuit in the DC circuit. Against the FCC saying that the net neutrality the FCC too far in deregulating here. And so yes, there backers of the net neutrality laws, and as far as the critics of the FCC's moves, you know, they were saying, oh, you know, we're gonna see throttling. Again. We're going to see prioritization, again, have you seen any evidence that the that's been happening since the FCC announcing. No, I mean, I don't think we have and. But I think in part, you know, there's there's something to be said about that. Would this isn't the right time for those the broadband companies would be I mean, if they were thinking about doing that. Well, this is in litigation. They don't wanna give any. The nets NFL supporters. Exactly, exactly. So it's sort of a even even though there are there may be no laws on the books. In fact, right now, there's an effective check on the companies from doing, you know, really agree GIS things with their network management now. Now, they might like to pursue some things that they think are positives for consumers where you know, you hear about these zero rating plans what the company say, hey, we we we might feel the treat some traffic in a in a way that the consumers like so we should take the handcuffs off us. Let us do this stuff. And we'll we'll manage it in a way that best serves our customer. Thank you, Matt that's Bloomberg intelligence, litigation. Analysts Matt Shenton helm. You're listening to Bloomberg politics policy and power on Bloomberg radio coming up as Democrats predict a Blue Wave to take back the house in November Republicans.
