Save 50% on IPVanish VPN while you help save net neutrality

Learn about net neutrality. Do your part. Save on a great VPN.

Today is the Day of Action to Save Net Neutrality (if you don't know what's going on, read this editorial by Daniel Bader). In order to spread awareness about net neutrality, IPVanish is offering its VPN plans for $39/year, a savings of 50% off for today only.

VPNs are, of course, about protecting your data, thus they're about protecting your privacy. That isn't just limited to your personal information. You internet provider can view what sort of traffic you produce, and without net neutrality, your speeds could be throttled based on your online activity. Entire sites could be blocked to you simply because of your provider's business interests.

You shouldn't be told what you can and cannot see online, and IPVanish wants to help in more ways than one. First, you can join the ranks and tell the FCC just what you think about its plans. You can also email your representatives, letting them know what you think about net neutrality. And, if you're concerned about your data and your privacy going forward, you can save 50% on IPVanish VPN plans. The offer ends at 12:01 a.m. July 13, so do your part to help save net neutrality and protect your data, your privacy, and your online freedom going forward.

Save net neutrality and keep our mobile future awesome

Do your part to keep the internet open and weird.

I love to tell people what I think of a particular thing, be it a product or brand or service provider. I'll freely tell someone to go with T-Mobile as a carrier, for example, because it offers the best compromise between speed, value, and coverage. Rarely, though, does it occur to me to judge a provider based on its stance towards net neutrality, a topic that has a direct impact on the American people.

Maybe I should.

Today, July 12, is the Day of Action to Save Net Neutrality, where thousands of companies are taking a stand to support the current state of the internet. We at Mobile Nations stand with larger entities like Google, Amazon, Netflix, Facebook, Twitter, and thousands of others in urging the FCC to uphold Title II regulations, which designate as telecommunication services, legally preventing them from changing the way internet traffic is sent, shaped, and received.

Net neutrality is a complicated topic — we have a small explainer if you want to learn a bit more about it — but the move to deregulate parts of the internet comes from a self-proclaimed libertarian FCC chair, Ajit Pai, whose desire is to see less government regulation around telecommunications services at all costs, regardless of whether they negatively impact consumers.

The onus shouldn't be on us, the consumer, to police bad actors. The FCC wants that to be the case.

In an interview he gave with NPR earlier this year, he said that instead of the arrangement we have now, which pre-emptively abrogates the preferential treatment of certain types of internet traffic over others, he wants to move to regulating on a case-by-case basis.

First and foremost, we want to make sure that all content that is lawful on the Internet can be accessed by consumers — that's a bedrock protection of the open Internet that I think everybody would agree with. ... But secondly, we want to make sure that we have the ability to allow all kinds of streaming companies, others who create content on the Internet, to be able to reach their endpoints, which is the consumers.

And so we can envision some pro-competitive arrangements that allow for video in particular to be delivered in an efficient way. And one could conceive anti-competitive arrangements. And the simple point I've made is that we can't predict in advance every single potential type of outcome — some might be good, some might be bad — and on a case-by-case basis let's figure out what types of conduct are anti-competitive or otherwise would harm consumers or innovators, and take action if we see something like that arise.

Pai's argument arises out of a firm belief that over-regulation leads to a decrease in investment and cites examples of how certain internet companies have limited wired broadband and fixed mobile expansion into rural areas over the last few years. He also believes in what he calls a "free and open internet" that is not shackled by the 1930's-era Title II classification that oversaw Ma Bell, a true telecom monopoly.

"If you act before the fact, then you're preemptively saying that we think the marketplace is forever going to be the same and we can take account of every particular kind of conduct," he said. "You could be prohibiting a number of pro-competitive business arrangements."

While Pai may be correct in an environment where meaningful competition didn't already exist, if we look at what's happened to the U.S. wireless market since Title II was implemented in 2015, we see a clear trend towards an internet that is more accessible, mobile, and competitive. We see companies like T-Mobile — a proponent itself of the end of net neutrality, mind you — undercutting Verizon and AT&T, pushing the former carrier duopoly to not only lower prices but to become much more transparent in how they treat their customers. An open, free internet also leads to savvier, more educated users, and the expansion of net neutrality laws brought the layperson into the conversation.

Perhaps the most vexing and frustrating thing about Pai's insistence that pre-emptive regulation needs to be removed in favor of a lighter regulatory touch is his placement of the onus on the consumers — you, me, us — to identify violators. "Especially in the Internet age," he said, "consumers are able to complain to the Federal Trade Commission authorities, the Justice Department, the FCC, other state agencies."

Right now, the FCC is forced to police the internet service providers on our behalf, to enforce regulations that prevent companies like AT&T and Verizon from silently and sneakily limiting their unlimited plans, as they once did, and not following through with broadband expansion contracts because they weren't guaranteed a big enough return.

Zero-rating may seem like a good thing, but it opens the door for a lot that's terrible.

The rollback of net neutrality isn't about making legal so-called consumer-friendly tactics such as zero-rating, which has become so pervasive in the U.S. that it's not clear whether people actually associate them with the movement anymore. But that pervasiveness denotes an insidiousness to how network providers approach regulation, always trying to find a legal maneuver around the problem. When T-Mobile stopped counting streaming music and video services against a user's monthly data cap, it did so knowing that the FCC would eventually hold it to account for its actions. It took a new administration and a libertarian, light-touch-regulation chair to drop all inquiries into whether zero-rating violated net neutrality.

While it may sound like programs like T-Mobile's Binge On and others like it benefit consumers — who doesn't want more data for free? — they have the potential to shut out smaller companies that lack the requisite size or influence to make a deal with a massive carrier. Recently, carriers in the UK began mimicking their U.S. counterparts. In Canada, such zero-rating programs were recently banned not just for their own sake, but to show the telecom regulator's commitment to reinforcing the rules of net neutrality.

Should Title II classification be stripped away from the service providers to whom we give thousands of dollars every year, such legal challenges will be more difficult to win, and carriers — even AT&T, which is reportedly joining the fight to uphold net neutrality — will be free to do more in the name of profit, at the expense of the internet we love.

If you want to do just that, you have until July 17 to submit your comments to the FCC about why a truly free and open internet deserves to be something Americans take for granted.

Confirmed: Additional measures are now in place to further strengthen BlackBerry KEYone displays

Following up on their previous statement, a member of BlackBerry Mobile Support team posted in CrackBerry's KEYone forums over the weekend informing users that additional measures are already in place and rolling out now:

"As we've all seen by now in Kevin's real world durability test, the BlackBerry KEYone has been purpose built to offer a distinctly different, highly durable smartphone experience that can live up to normal everyday use. In a further effort to ensure all our BlackBerry Mobile customers and fans have an outstanding experience, we're implementing additional measures that add even greater strength and adhesive to the BlackBerry KEYone display. These new measures are already being implemented on new KEYone's and are beginning to hit our retailer and carrier inventories – and will continue to come in stock throughout the summer. If you've already purchased the BlackBerry KEYone, you're fully covered by our manufacturer's warranty, so if any issue arises, please contact us, and we can help you with a warranty replacement if needed."

While many users have picked up a KEYone and had no display separation issues, I'm happy to see that BlackBerry Mobile has taken steps to further strengthen the display further as it rolls off the assembly and ships out to retailers around the globe. I think we can all agree that rock solid hardware build quality is one of those aspects we believe makes a BlackBerry a BlackBerry, so I'm glad to see this get nipped in the bud (I'd prefer to never see another forum thread or tweet about screen separation again!).

At this point in time, I'm not exactly sure what specific changes were made to strengthen the display adhesion and if there's a way to tell if a KEYone unit is manufactured before or after this change. I don't expect there will be any physical indications on device packaging to note the reinforced units as in reality this has been a pretty limited issue (not a Galaxy Note 7 blowing up type of thing) early in the rollout of the KEYone which will likely have a long retail shelf life. If you're one of the unlucky few who have suffered an issue with their KEYone related to the display, BlackBerry Mobile has your back. After all, that's why manufacturer warranties exist - if and when problems arise they'll stand behind their warranty. Case closed.

Want to learn more about your KEYone or need some help? Visit our KEYone Support Forum where you can access additional resources, including our BlackBerry Mobile Support Directory which will point you in the right direction in case you need to contact BlackBerry Mobile directly.

What's in MrMobile's bag for 2017?

It's been a full year since I last gave you a peek into my pockets for a tour of MrMobile's Everyday Carry. That's equivalent to four years on the planet Mercury, seven years for the common canine – and roughly a century when it comes to mobile technology. In that time I've traded Windows Mobile for BlackBerry; shed the Microsoft Band in favor of some even bigger smartwatches; and upgraded to the new iPad Pro while leaving my MacBook as-is. Oh, and I bought a wallet at a comic book store. Because YOLO, or something.

So whether you're seeking early ideas for Prime Day or just wondering what populates the pockets of a crazy contrarian like me, come check out the gadgetry that gets me where I'm going – in MrMobile's 2017 Everyday Carry!

When it comes to expanding the offerings within BBM, Creative Media Works has been on a roll. The latest version has brought better spam protection, video for Group Chat, a cleaner user interface, and more including the expansion of BBM Rewards to four new territories, after the initial release in South Africa, the U.S. and Canada. BBM users in Malaysia, Nigeria, Singapore and the UK can now earn rewards by responding to surveys and other activities.

The technology used for this service relies on Billaway's marketing platform, which can be integrated seamlessly into any mobile application. Since launching in South Africa two months ago, BBM Messenger users are saving up to 80% of their monthly airtime bill via BBM Rewards.

BBM Rewards enables market research firms, polls and survey companies to seek consumer insights on a variety of topics such as sports, beauty, politics, food, technology and more.

"Consumers' opinions on important issues, current events, products and services are very valuable to organizations providing market research, polls and surveys.

"BBM Rewards is an easy, fun and best of all, cost-free way to lower your mobile bill and reduce costs on daily expenses."

As noted by Matthew Talbot, CEO of Creative Media Works, the company, which operates and runs BBM globally "We've been busy adding a ton of new services to the BBM Discover menu that we know BBM users are interested to use in their daily lives. We are focusing on working with best-in-breed partners like Billaway to provide an enriched experience within BBM, giving users more compelling reasons to share BBM content and services with their friends and family."

Billaway and BBM Messenger Further Extends BBM Rewards to Four New Territories

Singapore, July 6, 2017 – Following the series of successful launches with BBM Messenger in South Africa, the U.S. and Canada, Billaway, a U.S. based marketing technology company that enables mobile phone consumers the ability to earn rewards, today further extends BBM Rewards with Creative Media Works, which operates as BBM, for consumers across Android and iOS platforms in Malaysia, Nigeria, Singapore and the United Kingdom.
