NEW YORK (AP) – Internet companies are readying for a showdown with a Republican-controlled government over a policy near and dear to their hearts: net neutrality.

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai said in a Wednesday speech that he wants to ditch the Obama-era rules, hated by telecoms, that prevent broadband and wireless companies from interfering with the sites and apps that consumers use. He wants to undo their legal basis and to eliminate the FCC's broad powers to monitor Verizon, AT&T and Comcast for bad behavior.

6. Telecom Lobbying Muscle Kills Privacy Rules -

NEW YORK (AP) – The telecom industry's lobbying muscle pushed a consumer privacy measure to a swift death in Congress.

Republicans struck down Obama-era rules that would have imposed tight restrictions on what broadband companies such as Verizon, AT&T and Comcast could do with their customers' personal data.

9. Senate Passes Less Speedy Rural Broadband Bill -

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The Senate on Monday passed a bill that could make it easier for rural areas in Tennessee to get access to high-speed internet. However, a last-minute amendment tacked on to the bill would not require the internet to be so speedy.

10. AP Explains: What the Death of Broadband Privacy Rules Means -

NEW YORK (AP) – Now that both houses of Congress have voted to block Obama-era broadband privacy rules , what does that mean for you?

In the short term, not so much. The rules, which would have put tough restrictions on what companies like Comcast, Verizon and AT&T can do with information such as your internet history, hadn't yet gone into effect. So if President Donald Trump signs the measure, as the White House has indicated he will , the status quo will remain.

15. View From the Hill: Haslam Plan Tilts Broadband Playing Field -

State Reps. Pat Marsh and Art Swann emerged from a meeting underwhelmed by Gov. Bill Haslam’s legislation to spread broadband internet access across Tennessee.

16. View From the Hill: Cooperatives Ready to Fill Broadband Void -

LAS VEGAS (AP) – Comcast is hoping to make Wi-Fi in the home faster through an updated router – the machine that serves as data traffic cops for Wi-Fi networks.

20. Disney Embraces Streaming as Ratings Sag -

NEW YORK (AP) – As more and more people get their favorite TV shows and movies online, Disney is also learning to embrace the stream.

The Walt Disney Co. once resisted offering channels like ESPN directly over the internet, preferring old-fashioned cable subscriptions. Its investors are fretting over ratings as more people cut the cord and cancel cable or satellite service. NFL game viewership is also down, and the contentious election drew viewers away from Disney networks like ABC to cable news networks.

21. FCC Concerned About AT&T Exempting DirecTV From Data Caps -

NEW YORK (AP) – Federal regulators say that they are concerned that AT&T's exempting its DirecTV unit from cellphone data caps could hurt competition.

AT&T lets customers watch video on DirecTV apps on their AT&T cellphones without eating into monthly data allotments. It's expected to do the same with an upcoming, $35-a-month TV streaming service called DirecTV Now.

22. Companies Set Monthly Record for Mergers, Acquisitions -

27. Resume Preparation -

One of the hardest parts of looking for a job isn’t the looking part. It’s what happens during preparation. In particular, writing a great resume can be an incredibly stressful feat.

Imagine this. You’re asked to put an entire summary of your life down on paper. But it must fit on one or two pages, or it won’t be read. It must be 100 percent accurate, or you could be fired by your future employer. It must tell the story of every career victory, or no one will take you seriously. It must not make you look too old or too young, or you could be perceived as incompetent. Oh, and it should be up to date – always. You never know when someone might ask for it.

31. Comcast Plans to Launch Wireless Service Next Year -

NEW YORK (AP) – Comcast plans to launch a cellphone service roughly in the middle of next year, although it would be limited to areas of the country where it's a cable provider.

32. Google Fiber Warns It Could Pull Plug Over Nashville Impasse -

33. Hulu Dropping Free Video As It Prepares Cable TV Alternative -

NEW YORK (AP) — Hulu is dropping the free TV episodes that it was initially known for as it works on an online television service to rival cable TV.

Hulu said Monday that free episodes — typically the most recent four or five episodes from a show's current season — will be gone from the site within a few weeks. Instead, it is making free episodes available through Yahoo in an expansion of a distribution partnership the internet company has had with Hulu.

34. Time Warner Invests in Hulu in Win for Cable Cord-Cutters -

NEW YORK (AP) – In another win for cable cord-cutters, Time Warner has become the latest media company to invest in streaming service Hulu.

The move could boost the viability of an online TV service that Hulu is expected to launch next year as an alternative to cable TV. Sony and Dish already operate online TV services, while Apple has expressed interest in one, according to published reports. None of those companies, however, have the networks themselves as full partners or owners, the way Hulu does.

35. And Now It's Comcast vs. The Wait for the Cable Guy -

NEW YORK (AP) – Did you hear the one about the cable company that's actually improving customer service? The punchline: Comcast and its rivals say it's no joke.

These companies have poured hundreds of millions into new tools and staff to de-agonize the process of getting cable TV, Internet or phone service. It's part of a yearslong effort to assuage customers as the specter of "cord-cutting" – dumping cable for Netflix and the like – haunts the industry. More than 2 million customers have fled from cable and satellite over the past three years, according to research firm SNL Kagan, and the pace has been accelerating.

36. Last Word: Being Veep, Greensward Still Active and Tuition Goes Up -

37. Netflix to Make Debut on Comcast's X1 Box Later This Year -

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Comcast is going to add Netflix to its X1 set-top boxes in the latest deal to blur the lines separating cable TV from Internet video services.

38. Federal Court Upholds Net Neutrality Rules -

A federal appeals court on Tuesday upheld the government's "net neutrality" rules that require internet providers to treat all web traffic equally.

The 2-1 ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit is a win for the Obama administration, consumer groups and content companies such as Netflix that want to prevent online content from being blocked or channeled into fast and slow lanes.

39. Say Goodbye to Time Warner Cable: Sale Leads to Name Change -

NEW YORK (AP) – Soon you'll have a new cable company to hate. It'll take some practice, but in time you'll get used to swearing at Spectrum.

Time Warner Cable, the largest cable provider in New York and Los Angeles, among other markets, was just bought by Charter Communications Inc., which has mostly operated in the Midwest. The Stamford, Connecticut-based company also bought Bright House Networks Wednesday. That makes Charter the second-largest home Internet provider and third-largest video provider in the U.S. Over the next year and a half, Charter will phase out the Time Warner Cable and Bright House names in favor of its own brand, Spectrum.

40. Hulu Will Offer Live-Streaming Service in 2017 -
