The FCC Is Going To Ruin The Internet This Week


On one side, you have the internet service providers (ISPs) like Comcast and Verizon, which want to keep their control of broadband and potentially use it to favor their own internet services over competing services. On the other side, you have proponents of net neutrality who believe the internet should be treated as a government-regulated utility to help foster innovation and economic growth.

FCC chairman Tom Wheeler has already pre-announced his proposed rules, and while they attempt to appease both sides of the debate, they still heavily favor the ISPs' position and have the potential to damage the future of internet innovation in this country.

Unfortunately for everyone but the ISPs, there's a good chance Wheeler's proposal will go through.

I vote that we put the head cheese of the FCC in jail for even entertaining the thought.
