So, basically, good news, bad news if you're anxious to get your hands on the fastest mobile wireless technology.

There's still hope for Net Neutrality

ISPs won the battle over Internet deregulation in December -- but the war over an open Internet isn't over yet. Of course, I'm referring to the Federal Communications Commission's December decision to remove itself as the Internet's governing body and effectively rescind the Internet protection principles known as Net Neutrality, as established by the previous White House administration.

Now, the Internet Association, a trade group that represents the interests of tech startups and behemoths alike, has signaled its intention to take the matter to court.

"IA intends to act as an intervenor in judicial action against this order and, along with our member companies, will continue our push to restore strong, enforceable net neutrality protections through a legislative solution," said Michael Beckerman, president and CEO of the association.
