Whether we agree with what is attempting to be done or not, I think many on both sides will agree the situation will be a lot better when it is governed by law (i.e. the product of all three branches of our govt) rather than apparently being the ultimate decision of one person. We're not talking about a small issue here, and if there's enough slop/discretion to allow biting off this much without going through "the process", then that's not good.
Until it is resolved, this decision will be known as the "Telecommunication Lawyer Full Employment Ruling of 2015".

[Mod Edit]

This is pro content innovation.

As far as the telecom propaganda that telecoms won't invest unless they can maximize profits, [Mod Edit]

Of course it's all [Mod Edit] since Internet speeds in the US fare poorly in the OECD rankings. Telecoms spent a lot of money lobbying and for all the capital they spent in the last decade, US still has poor results. In the rest of the industrialized world, there isn't the kind of throttling nor protected monopolies.

There really should be little doubt where the pro and anti consumer forces line up on this.

I'm really surprised no one has mentioned it's not a truck... it's a series of tubes.... But now it's a neutral set of tubes.

Series of tubes - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
