Olbermann-FISA, Telecom Immunity and other Crimes Keith Olbermann: Special Comment By Keith Olbermann MSNBC Countdown Thursday 31 January 2008 Transcript And finally, as promised, a Special Comment - of FISA and the telecoms. In a presidency of hypocrisy - an administration of exploitation - a labyrinth of leadership - in which every vital fact is a puzzle inside a riddle wrapped in an enigma hidden under a claim of executive privilege supervised by an idiot - this one... is surprisingly easy. President Bush has put protecting the telecom giants from the laws... ahead of protecting you from the terrorists. He has demanded an extension of the FISA law - the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act - but only an extension that includes retroactive immunity for the telecoms who helped him spy on you. Congress has given him, and he has today signed a fif***-day extension which simply kicks the time bomb down the field, and has changed nothing of his insipid rhetoric, in which he portrays the Democrats as 'soft on terror' and getting in the way of his superhuman efforts to protect the nation... when, in fact, and with bitter irony, if anybody is 'soft on terror' here... it is Mr. Bush. In the State of the Union Address, sir, you told Congress, "if you do not act by Friday, our ability to track terrorist threats would be weakened and our citizens will be in greater danger." Yet you are willing to weaken that ability! You will subject us, your citizens, to that greater danger. This, Mr. Bush, is simple enough even for you to ...

Net Neutrality: EU forces telecoms to disclose 'real' internet connection speeds European Commissioner Neelie Kroes on Tuesday said that the European Commission proposes more stringent rules for telecom operators and internet providers that will force companies to disclose the 'real'' connection speeds for the internet connections they provide and that will allow consumers to change providers while keeping their phone numbers. The Commission is today releasing a report on net neutrality that underlines the right of citizens and businesses to have easy access to an open and neutral internet, just one month before the new EU telecoms rules are due to come into force in all Member States on 25 May. The key points about the new rules concern transparency, quality of service and the ability to switch operator. Together with national telecoms regulators, the Commission will spend 2011 closely looking at current market practices. At the end of 2011, Neelie Kroes will present the findings and will publicly name operators engaging in doubtful practices. She will be looking particularly closely for any instances of unannounced blocking or throttling of certain types of traffic, and any misleading advertising of broadband speeds.

Ted Kennedy attacks retroactive immunity for Telecoms Ted Kennedy gave a great speech denouncing Bush's demand for retroactive immunity for the Telecoms in the new FISA bill... "It's painfully clear what the President's request for retroactive immunity is really about. It's a self-serving attempt to avoid legal and political accountability and keep the American public in the dark about this whole shameful episode. Like the CIA's destruction of videotapes showing potentially criminal conduct, it's a desperate attempt to erase the past. The Senate should see this request for what it is, and reject it. We should pass this amendment to strike Title II from the FISA bill. Our focus should be on protecting national security, our fundamental liberties, and the rule of law—not protecting phone companies that knew they were breaking the law."

Stephen Banable on 'The New EU Telecoms Package' About the Speech: The wide number of proposals in the Telecoms Package are designed to coordinate action amongst regulators to create a pro-competitive single market without regulatory borders and to reinforce competition. It is intended that this will facilitate high speed internet networks for all Europeans and stimulate economic growth. In particular, the package will provide for: - more powers to the Commission including issuing legally binding decisions to ensure the harmonisation of regulation across Member States; - the establishment of a new telecoms agency; - ensuring access to optical fibre by smaller telecoms operators; - the possibility of introducing a functional separation between services and network activities of telecoms operators; - the introduction of the notion of universal broadband services to consumers; - wireless services will be made EU-wide operable by harmonising radio spectrum use; and - the Telecoms Package will provide for the switching of bandwidth from a part of the frequencies now used for broadcasting, to provide wireless broadband services in the future. These policy objectives of the Telecoms Package are of particular interest to industry regulators, consumer groups, Irish government departments and electronic communication/telecoms operators. About the Speakers: Stephen Banable is a national expert with the European Commission in DG Information Society and Media with responsibility for mobile regulatory issues and implementation of the ...

China Telecommunications Firm Sued ANCHOR: One of the largest Chinese telecoms is facing a major lawsuit. China Mobile Communications Group Shandong, Ltd. is allegedly owned by-and-large, by a French investor. Here's a look at the controversy it's brewing. STORY: When Wanboa Sun discovered that China Mobile Communications Group Shandong Limited was a foreign-funded enterprise, he sued the company. He has gotten no response from CCP officials so far. [Wanbao Sun, Communication Rights Protector]: (quote 1, male) "I find that the defendant provided a copy of his business license. It shows that it's a wholly foreign-owned enterprise based in the British Virgin Islands. The investor is a Frenchman by the name of Walker. Because foreign-invested enterprises cannot be sole proprietors of telecommunications business in China, I questioned that point in court. But the judge didn't come to any conclusion and the defendant remained silent." Sun says China Mobile may be registered abroad in order to escape paying taxes in China. [Wanbao Sun, Communication Rights Protector]: (quote 2, male) "I reported to the executive authorities about the defendant's illegal operation, but got no answer; then I sued the defendant's illegal operation in court, but the court was also partial to them. The Chinese government's departments and courts are all protecting a foreign enterprise's behavior of deceiving the Chinese people." According to a pre-2008 cabinet order, the amount of foreign capital put into China's telecommunications ...

Revolutionizing the telecom sector: Jonas Birgersson @ LeWeb Swedish IT-Entrepreneur Jonas Birgersson, aka „broadband Jesus“, now talks about his start-up company ViaEuropa. ViaEuropa is about to revolutionize the telecom sector by putting a fiber cable beside the electrical cable and Via Europa’s ecosystem on top of it. The enduser can then choose any operator he wants. Birgersson, whose background is in Military Intelligence, points out that this is „a fully neutral, open system where the enduser is the winner. The only thing we do is to put away the strange structure of the telecom sector and build a normal marketplace. Everybody is invited to compete on equal terms. This is how it works in all other businesses except the telecom sector.“ ViaEuropa’s model is already fully proven in Scandinavia, but once it is proven outside of Scandinavia within the next one or two years, the telecoms will be in big trouble. So it is not astonishing that Jonas Birgersson is „one of the most hated people in the Telecom sector since many years“. But according to Birgersson „ it’s about reinventing ideas - if you are loved, you’re not an entrepreneur, you’re not disruptive enough.“ ViaEuropa is especially interested in the emerging markets both in Africa and South america. Birgersson cites a study that shows that in developing countries 1% increase in broadband penetration results in a 3% extra GDP growth. Jonas Birgersson is a serial entrepreneur, he founded ...
Q&A: How Will Google Voice Affect Telecoms? In this video, I answer a question from FishTWiT regarding the effect of google voice will have on the telecoms. Google purchased Grand Central which has a lot of features that has one number that forwards to many phones, visual voicemail, and rich filters to route calls based on where calls are coming from. Google voice added SMS, and voicemail transcribing. Yes I think Google voice will have an affect on telecoms. They are positioning themselves to take over the world of telecom.

Smart Telecom and Web 2.0 Technologies IBM jStart Emerging Technologies team discusses how Web 2.0 introduces new challenges to telecom companies. New breed of competitors have begun encroaching on what was traditionally considered the domain of telecom operators. Embracing Web 2.0 technologies, principles and concepts can actually help telecoms capitalize on their current strengths and seize new business opportunities. Local awareness, established consumer relationships (including billing) and a reliable communication services can be better exploited. The first step is to surface core data and services. Exposing APIs and making widgets available enables telecoms to add value in an open content economy. Mashup solutions are an attractive option to empower new classes of internal and external users to construct new services or customize existing ones cost-effectively.
