re:ITU Boss Explains Why Wants The UN To Regulate Internet

It is all about control. He claims it is for security, but that is just the way for the UN to control people worldwide. He has a lot of support from dictators and those countries that are not democracies.

Here is his OpEd

Here is TechDirt's interpretation of his comments:

Re: re:ITU Boss Explains Why Wants The UN To Regulate Internet

I think money has to be on the move in some form. A central global control of the internet would certainly make it easier for the MAFIAA to chase copyright infringement. I can bet they are spreading some dollars around the ITU and the UN.

If you can't beat 'em... belittle what they are accomplishing! The US and UK are being left behind so speed must not be important. The author would have us all still on dialup.

I think it's more important to make sure as many people as possible have access to broadband than to make sure that those who currently have broadband have 100 Mbps connections. I have a 30 Mbps connection that I'm fine with. Heck if my ISP offered a 18 Mbps connection for $10 a month cheaper I'd drop down.

makes me think the reason they invest so much in making dense suburban so fast while not investing in light suburbia and rural areas is so that they can claim to have the fastest broadband network.

I mean on TV claiming to have 5mbit to farm country does not sell to the viewers at home like claiming they can get 300mbit if they live in the right area.

That, and its much more economical to "fatten the pipes" than it is to "build the pipes".

That's true but the two are not mutually exclusive (nor financially exclusive). Unfortunately, the providers and their cheerleaders will vehemently defend the right to ignore the people they don't want as customers. So they end up ignoring both... the cities are left behind compared to other countries and the people in 'unprofitable areas' are still ignored.
