It’s not every day that the opportunity to speak with FCC officials is presented, so I did my best to make the most of it, ultimately resulting in a phone call that allowed me to get to the heart of the matter regarding the kinds of services that AV integrators provide and which of them, if any, would be protected by the Open Internet rules.

Essentially, as I’ve discussed before, the rules place the distinction of BIAS (broadband internet access service) on the services and devices that are protected. What that actually means is that if someone can open a web browser and log into the service from anywhere then it is protected under the rules.
