WROC Rochester – The Broadband Internet Fairness Act

Phillip Dampier April 24, 2009 Public Policy & Gov't, Time Warner Cable, Video 1 Comment

Congressman Eric Massa’s proposed Broadband Internet Fairness Act helped drum up sufficient attention to the issue of usage caps, it helped postpone them, at least in some areas.

Unrated.  It’s a 30 second story generally describing Rep. Massa’s proposed legislation. How much can you say in 30?
