well yes, there has to be some strong rules for internet. The way the websites share personal information and many countries these are not even considered crime.

I find it interesting that the FCC made a distinction between wired & wireless ISPs, based on the present state of technology. Does this mean they will change the rules again in a few years, so that wired & wireless are competing on the same level playing field?

Internet service providers are competing in the same space as content providers. There is clearly a interest on the ISP's part to restrict or impede the delivery of services that are competing with them. In my view, I'm buying a pipe to get my data through, and it should not be restricted or have additional fees attached based on the content of the pipe. Yes, bandwidth management makes sense, but only on a macro scale. Any throttling that isn't applied as a whole to a given service area is the ISP abusing their position.

The internet has been a marvel for knowledge dissemination and wealth creation. Why try to fix something that is not broken. Looks like another jobs program for lawyers.
