Time Warner Statement on FCC Adoption of Net Neutrality Rules

December 22, 2010 -

Time Warner Cable issued a statement yesterday in support of the Federal Communications Commission’s adoption of net neutrality rules. Cable companies like Time Warner support the new rules, say opponents of the measure, because the telecom industry helped write the draft proposal.

Time Warner called the rules "a workable balance between protecting consumers' interests and preserving incentives for investment and innovation by broadband Internet service providers." The company added that, while it thinks that "regulation is unnecessary and unwarranted," it is pleased with what the FCC has come up with because it avoids reclassifying broadband under Title II of the Telecommunications Act.

Here is the company line as it relates to consumers:

"Time Warner Cable remains committed to providing consumers with the best possible Internet experience by ensuring that they are able to access the content, services, and applications online that they want, when they want. Now that the FCC has settled on a regulatory framework for broadband Internet access services, we can pursue that mission with a somewhat greater measure of certainty and stability going forward. "

If any of the telecoms approve of the rules, then you know it's bad.

Yeah, we know we don't need the rules, but we love them anyway...cause we helped write them.

No rules are better than corrupted rules....


I have a dream, break the chains of copy right oppression! http://zippydsmlee.wordpress.com/2010/05/21/cigital-disobedience/


Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

Pretty much says all you need to know, doesn't it?

Andrew EisenI think it's an awesome next step for GOG and completely fail to see why anyone sees it as problematic or improper.08/27/2014 - 2:51pm

E. Zachary KnightAh. Didn't realize Captain Falcon was from F-Zero. Perhaps they didn't want too much SSB cross over characters.08/27/2014 - 10:30am
ZenEZK they could easily just put Captain Falcon in (they are using his car anyways) and he would be the most recognizable character from the series for the anime, games, and Smash Bros.08/27/2014 - 9:42am
ZenMasked there are also the two from Animal Crossing that are going to be in it. I am wondering what they will do for the Excitebike level they gave a peek at.08/27/2014 - 9:41am
E. Zachary KnightDoes F-Zero really have a character that is recognizable that could be used? I would think the cars and tracks would be more recognizable.08/27/2014 - 8:55am
MaskedPixelantehttp://www.joystiq.com/2014/08/27/rockstar-lohans-gta-5-lawsuit-just-jonas-ing-for-publicity/ Rockstar releases the biggest "no duh" statement in the universe.08/27/2014 - 8:07am
MaskedPixelanteI'm just saying, they're giving us an F-Zero kart and an F-Zero track, but their crossover representative is Link?08/27/2014 - 8:00am
ZenMasked, not really sure what your are talking about lol. They will be giving a total of 6 characters, 8 vehicles, and 16 tracks...plus the Yoshi and Shy Guy sets if you get both packs. Not bad for about the price of a single CoD map pack lol.08/27/2014 - 7:02am
MaskedPixelanteSee the flaw here. Blue Falcon car, F-Zero themed track, and Link as a playable character.08/27/2014 - 6:46am

Andrew EisenNintendo has worked with plenty of western or non-Japan devs. It partners more often with devs in its own country but I wouldn't say it doesn't like western devs.08/26/2014 - 7:36pm
Matthew WilsonOr... give it to the studio that just formed from the old Darksiders guys. yeah I know outside of Retro they do not like working with western devs.08/26/2014 - 6:46pm
MechaTama31They should have just handed the Zelda reins to the team responsible for Okami, because they out-Zelda-ed Zelda.08/26/2014 - 6:08pm
Uncharted NESI miss Nintendo-Capcom Zelda games. ALTTP on the GBA was my first real time really playing through that game. And you know what, it was fun. :P08/26/2014 - 5:42pm
IanC3 and a half amazing games, since Capcom did the A Link to the Past port, and the Four Swords game that was on the cart. So thats 4 games then, id guess.08/26/2014 - 5:03pm
