FCC Ruling Leaves Many Unanswered Questions

You were waiting on the edge of your chair for this one, I know. So much so that you couldn't sleep.

Well, now you can relax. It's over.

No, it's not the Peterson trial (but yes, there was a collective sigh of relief that the case is finally over).

It's internet telephone calls. What, you say, you didn't know?

Well, now there's a final decision by the FCC that it regulates internet phone companies, not the states.

But the battle's far from finished. There are still some questions. Like whether internet phone providers have to pay for the lines they're using. Or Universal service that other carriers pay for.

You knew it wasn't going to be free, didn't you?
