The Federal Communications Commission held an open meeting in which an order were made for the assessment of fees to cover the commission’s 2008 regulatory costs. Then the commission ruled on a complaint filed by the group Free Press and Public Knowledge that Comcast Corporation secretly discriminated against customers using peer-to-peer file-sharing applications by degrading their high-speed Internet service. The commission reprimanded Comcast for unreasonable network management practices that violate Internet policies and ordered Internet service providers to disclose their network management techniques to consumers and regulators. 

At the conclusion of the meeting the commission’s interns and law clerks were introduced. close
