Vector 39: Net neutrality and carrier complexity


I second that, it's sad that the only reason it went down was because 90% of our politicians are bought an paid for.

As bad as us poor Americans may have it.... at least I don't have to carry around four or five smartphones all with different prepaid SIM Cards like our friends in Indonesia. Where BlackBerry just released a device with only one SIM spot.

Phones with multiple sim ports get no carrier support. Should blackberry have risked that?

Was a good show but I think Neal was having problems with his mic or data connection. He was in and out a bit but at least could still understand him.

Good show :)
