    On January 19th the FCC did release the final regulations for the new broadband mapping program, which is a step in the right direction. The first round of the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund broadband grant auction however was a giant cluster, which the new administration will have to clean up. Who knows what the midterm elections will bring, so it would be nice if we could get congress to pass some net neutrality legislation. I wouldn’t generally be optimistic about that, but I think if it’s gonna happen, now is the time to do it.

    I see that Carr is trying to avoid getting canned by staying on Trump’s good side. Unlike FCC commissioner O’Reilly, who just got the boot.

    I would like to see the legal gymnastics the FCC would have to present in order to argue that it simultaneously lacks the authority to implement net neutrality but it does have the authority to establish rules defining the scope of immunity in the communications decency act. It’s also a bedrock principal that the judiciary interprets the meaning of statutory provisions, and not the executive branch.
