After Verizon Communications Inc. and Google Inc. outlined their
proposal for allotting broadband capacity, the Federal Communication Commission delayed its next meeting
from Sept. 16 to Sept. 23, raising questions about the commission's agenda and whether it might vote on
broadband regulations. The FCC has been in limbo since an April decision from a federal
appellate court undercut its authority to set broadband rules, and it is now considering whether to regulate broadband as an
information service, reclassify it as a telecommunications
service or pursue FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski's
"third way," which treats broadband as a telecom service but applies only
a handful of the rules. - Mary Kathleen Flynn
