A Promising Approach to Internet Rules - New York Times

A Promising Approach to Internet Rules - New York Times | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it
To ensure a fair hybrid system for Web traffic, the F.C.C. must be willing to limit the power of broadband giants.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Just an idea....Everyone that uses or will be using the internet has a responsibility to keep up with internet policy and all sides and details of the various arguments. Berners-Lee did not patent the WEB and has said it is for everyone and with the gift comes responsibility or that gift could become a curse in the wrong hands used for the wrong reasons. We do not expect our phone company to cut deals with our friends or places we wish to talk to before we are allowed to speak....other than the contract to deliver service we pay for and do it well enough to deserve the money. These companies should not be allowed to do anything other then deliver good service to get to the WEB places, contacts and services WE CHOOSE TO ACCESS either. Those companies that get in the way of that or can't deliver on that contract need to be shut down and others that can or do need to appear and be enhanced.
