Folks in D.C. are surrounded by their own bubble. A bubble where there are lots of telecom lobbyists walking around who describe net neutrality as politically toxic
— Marvin Ammori, a lawyer who has been vocal in his support of net neutrality
Today's subject is net neutrality, which is basically what we've got today. In our likely future, the big ISPs (internet service providers) will give most of the internet bandwidth they control, which is 70% of it, to "content" providers (like Disney, ABC, NBC, etc.) who will pay for privileged access to their data pipes.
Sometimes the ISP (Comcast) and the "content" provider (NBC) are the very same assholes.
By implication, everybody else (like DOTE) will become the Little Sisters of the Poor. You may be able to access poor bastards like me once in a Blue Moon, or perhaps not at all.
Got it? This ain't Rocket Science.
Once again, there is Much Confusion in America. There shouldn't be. We all know The Drill.
