This month Tom Wheeler, the chair of the Federal Communications Commission, which is the agency charged with regulating all things having to do with interstate communications, detailed a proposed a new set of rules that would allow the FCC to regulate the Internet just as they do other public utilities, such as television, radio, telephone companies. Yay!

I want to pay for access to the internet, as all other products and services. T.A.N.S.T.A.A.F.L! ;)

If the huge ISP are ready to pay for extra services, I have no problem with that.

The politicians and bureaucrats have no right to intrude in our lives like this. What will be next step? Censorship?

I don't agree with this statement:

"Like cell phones, the Internet has become an essential public service, and some degree of regulation is necessary to protect consumers."

You should pay for cell phones and the Internet. And if you want to have a premium phone or Internet service, it is value to pay extra for.

Small business owners will buy their own rope, and get hanged with it (paraphrasing Karl Marx), if they go down this route with demanding "net neutrality" as a hand-out...

@Lyceum Well, interestingly, you already DO pay for access to the internet. Unless you're getting yours at the local library, in which case you're paying for it via your taxes! Let's keep it fair and equal before the huge ISPs run us all into the ground!
