Cisco Systems, Alcatel-Lucent, Corning, Ericsson, Motorola and Nokia Opposes Net Neutrality Rules.

Net Neutrality
Cisco Systems, Alcatel-Lucent, Corning, Ericsson, Motorola and Nokia and 38 others have send their concerns to the FCC saying new regulations could hinder the development of the Internet or more like their switch sales! They were also supported directly or indirectly by a group of 18 Republican US senators who also sent a letter to Genachowski siting their concerns regarding forth coming net neutrality regulations.
FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski is seeking to develop formal rules prohibiting Internet service providers from selectively blocking or slowing Web content and applications. The commission is scheduled to vote on October 22, a notice of proposed rules for net neutrality rules, which will eventually lead to rules and regulations.

"Until now, the innovators who are building the Internet and creating the advancements in telemedicine, education and the vast array of other online products and services have done so in an environment driven by competition and innovation, We believe government's role in the Internet should be to support investment, jobs and new technologies, especially if they increase the opportunity for all Americans to connect online."
