  • As usual, telcos want billions of federal dollars with no strings attached. #
  • Libraries are strapped for bandwidth. #

  • We like in-flight WiFI, so long as we don't have to pay for it. #
  • Is it time to reward Hulu's bad behavior with the cold shoulder? #

  • Time Warner is trying to enlist customers in the fight against higher retransmission fees. #
  • TiVo is dying a slow death as knockoffs and streaming take their toll. #
  • Short-haul fiber electronics are about to see a big price drop. #
