China is already the home to the largest internet community globally with 940 million users and over 80% mobile penetration rate, yet it is still growing fast. Revenue for Internet services increases at a rapid 25.4% in 2020, reaching $803.1 billion. From 2016 to 2021, internet traffic in China will grow 3-fold, at a CAGR of 26%. In March 2020, internet users in China spent about five hours per day online. However, for international companies trying to get into the market, the Chinese internet is notoriously hard to understand.
In this blog post, we will talk about the best practices of content delivery into China.
We spoke with Plume’s Director of Product Marketing, Mark Goodburn, about this innovative young company and its mission to transform broadband suppliers’ offerings through a revolutionary new bundle of Smart Home Services delivered through a Consumer Experience Management
(CEM) Platform. We have also included quotes taken from an interview between Plume CEO and Co-Founder, Fahri Diner with Wi-Fi NOW’s Claus Hetting in June this year.

Last year in The Journal, I explained how the US 180° turn on Net Neutrality could have a ripple effect for the rest of the world, yet as of March 2019 could there be a full 360° turn?
It was a fierce battle leading up to this decision and now the FCC is reversing its decision and removing the net neutrality rules. So what does this really mean?
Stan Moote asks Jim Burger who is an attorney in Washington at Thompson and Coburn to explain what is really going on, and the consequences of this reversal.
November 22, 2017 Prepared by the Office of FCC Commissioner Clyburn What is Net Neutrality? Net neutrality is the concept that consumers and businesses should be able to reach the online applications and services of their choosing without interference from their broadband provider. In other words, that all data and all legal traffic that travels over the Internet should be treated equally. This has been a bipartisan bedrock principle for more than a decade. What is Commissioner Clyburn’s position on Net Neutrality? Commissioner Clyburn has been an unwavering champion of robust, bright-line net neutrality rules that protect consumers against the anti-consumer and anti-competitive practices of broadband providers. The Commissioner continues to believe that the 2015 rules adopted by the FCC are the best way to protect consumers and small businesses while promoting innovation. Is it true that Chairman Pai’s proposal would eliminate Net Neutrality? Yes. It eliminates all prohibitions against blocking and throttling (slowing down) applications by broadband providers, and enables them to engage in paid prioritization and unreasonable discrimination at the point of interconnection. It ignores thousands of consumer complaints and millions of individual comments that ask the FCC to save net neutrality and uphold the principles that all...

Amidst the travel and meal preparations, many may have missed the "Pre-Holiday News Dump" last Wednesday when Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai released his 200 plus page proposal to dismantle the agency's open internet protections. Commonly referred to as "net neutrality," what is at stake is the ability of consumers and businesses to reach the online applications and services of their choosing without interference from their broadband provider. This has been a bipartisan bedrock principle for more than a decade, it was upheld in court last year, and has existed all while investment by broadband providers continues to grow. When I joined the FCC in 2009, as one of the agency's five Commissioners, Netflix's streaming video service had been around for just two years. Tumblr was still a relatively new player and Spotify was still two years away from launching in the U.S. These companies have seen tremendous growth over the past eight years thanks to a level playing field. Their continued success depends on an ability to...
