    And what if some providers do create fast and slow lanes, and charge more for fast? Won't there be competition, making users jump to other providers?

    All this "freedom" is really what created the semi-monopolies because we flocked to them. If they think they have their users over a barrell to raise prices, they will get a nasty surprise. Users will jump ship in no time, and they'll be forced to walk it back.

    I'm just asking. I believe all things being equal, you want less government control and more in the hands of the people. The many are usually wiser than the few.

    I don't know if there's is so much opposition to net neutrality in public, then how can you let your government implement such a bill. As far as i know, America is a democratic country and government works for the people. Why don't you guys protest and come on the road.
    A few years back, This kind of bills was put on the table in Parliament of India. But we had shown huge opposition to that bill. Ultimately government has to bow with the demands of public.

    HI,
    Typical public has no idea what it is :)
    All one would see is the keywords "net neutrality" and think well that sounds like a good thing
    But introducing gov into anything will usually fail to keep anything neutral.
    More regulations = more red tape and more money nearly every time.

    Here's an idea.... before we comment any more about whether or not the net neutrality order is good or bad, and whether repealing it is good or not, maybe we (including myself) should actually read it so we can make our own informed decisions instead of just following what different special interest and media groups are feeding us?

    I wonder how many of the media pundits that are commenting one way or the other on this have read it?

    Most people don't have the time or the ability to understand a 400 page document written in legalese.

    And hence, myself included, neither the time or ability to state an opinion based on fact, rather than the biased information that their favorite media outlet is feeding them.

    The Net Neutrality vote comes up this week on Thursday, December 14. It looks like there may be a wrench thrown in the gears that may delay the vote.

    FCC Must Investigate Fraud Before Voting on Net Neutrality

    This is apparent—to a whole lot of people. In fact, at this point, more than 23 million comments have been filed at the FCC in response to its proposal to eliminate net neutrality. But there are serious problems with the integrity of this record. Roughly a million comments were fraudulently filed using the names of real people. New York attorney general Eric Schneiderman has called this identity theft, and has launched an investigation.

    What's more, as many as half a million additional comments were filed from Russian email addresses. And 50,000 FCC consumer complaints are missing from the record, even though this is just the kind of data the FCC should be using to inform its efforts. Researchers say that bots are chiming in to diminish the power of real voices. And the FCC’s comment system is now the subject of a Government Accountability Office investigation over the agency’s claim that the system was the subject of an alleged DDoS attack.
