Submission + - Wireless Net Neutrality

monkey_dongle writes: NPR "On The Media" had an interesting broadcast this weekend about how wireless providers are crippling handsets in order to maintain control over their customers and revenue streams, all at the expense of innovation and lower prices. Columbia University law professor Tim Wu wrote a paper on this issue and presented it to a Federal Trade Commission hearing on Internet access this month.
