Forget Vonage Blog, its time for an FCC Blog?

  1. The French regulator, http://www.ART-Telecom.com has had ‘Le Blog’ since last december. It started to give out practical information on using the French Law (june 2004) that stipulates that cities and departments can deploy their own (FttX) networks.
    They now use it for up to date semi official information, disruptive postings etc. ‘Discours’ is a French word after all 😉

  2. This was tried, sort of, by Chairman Powell–who for a while posted to an Always On blog where he tried to give his version of events and thoughts into his decision-making process. Here is one problem that probably makes this either flat-out impossible or a useless tool–the idea that anything you say can be held against you in a court of law.

    Few industries are as litigious as the telecom industry, mostly because you can interpret the Telecom Act any which way you want to serve your purpose. Using information in a blog to get behind the veil of any FCC decision and especially the controversial ones (or the ones you really would be interested in) would be too easy for the General Counsel’s office to sanction. Therefore, the blog would look like every other press release that comes out of the FCC.
