    Tom Wheeler makes history with full-on Net neutrality proposal


    Internet freedom at last! FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler's proposal is for full Title II reclassification for ISPs, defining ISPs as utilities and preventing fast-lane profiteering Despite all the lobbying money, all the public fearmongering, and all the threats of disaster and doom from the big ISPs and their minions, the FCC will vote this month to classify Internet service providers as Title II common carriers. The proposal put forth by FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler is a watershed event.That this is occurring in 2015 instead of many years ago is due to several factors. For one, the FCC has kicked this can down the road for decades, with various commissioners taking a milquetoast approach or instituting rules that carried no weight. As the courts noted, the rules imposed on the ISPs by the FCC in 2010 were baseless because the FCC itself had declined to classify ISPs properly. These massive monopolies and oligopolies were still technically “information services,” not telecommunication providers.

    When the government runs anything it is and will be screwed up. Look at the DMV in the Golden State, California, to get into the DMV takes 5 weeks. So after Net neutrality, when you click on a web page then you can go make a cup of coffee and you can sip on it as you wait for the page to load. cool

    That depends on what state your live in. My landline bill went up $12.00 since Indiana deregulated it. However, AT&T increase was delayed about 5 years before they could do that and At&t will never be allowed to have local measured service. Pay per local calls or pay per minute for local calls. These restrictions our for landline only. For those that have measured service pay per local call they were allowed to keep it.
