Marketplace Tech

Marketplace Tech for Wednesday, February 4, 2015

Airing on Wednesday, February 4, 2015: This week, the Federal Communications Commission is expected to make the internet a public utility. That is, wireless and broadband data will be regulated as a telecommunication service, and not an information service, under Title II of the Telecommunications Act. We spoke with Kevin Werbach, an Associate Professor of Legal Studies and Business Ethics at the University of Pennsylvania, about the FCC’s plans to reclassify the internet. And Kevin Roose, Senior Editor at Fusion, joins us to talk about how prisoners use cell phones and social media on the inside.
