Regulations For Wireless Internet Concerns Verizon And AT&T

Two largest broadband service providers of America AT&T and Verizon have shown deep concerns with the regulations announcedby the chairman of Federal Communication commission (FCC) on net neutrality. These rules indicate towards keeping the broadband networks open and transparent.
In a Report from CNET an AT&T spokesman said

“We are concerned, however, that the FCC appears ready to extend the entire array of Net neutrality requirements to what is perhaps the most competitive consumer market in America: wireless services”
Here is the crux of FCC  announcement: Make Internet a free and open place. Prevent Internet service providers from selectively blocking or limiting access to specific services.

They (AT&T and Verizon) agree with keeping broadband services open for wired networks since the peak demands for a resource (Eg: webpage) can be managed.  Since the crowding for same resource develops at a very high rate in case of wireless networks, so it will be difficult to manage the demands.
Companies like Clearwire have applauded the regulations. On the whole I suppose it’s the competition in wireless services market that concerns the leaders (AT&T, Verizon).
