    Bro.


    I know all about net neutrality, understand packet prioritization, and it's functions in relation to peers, sockets, routing, pipelines, tiers, et al. I am for net neutrality wich is simply every packet is equal if you want to simplify it. ,

    That's it, there it is, end of story, net neutrality.


    What ever it is you are speaking of is NOT "net neutrality".


    Would you like to know why the biggest rally case for net neutrality the netflix/comcast spat also had nothing to do with net neutrality. At the end of the discussion we could then review the whole "smartened" vs "not smartened" in our relationship.



    Now if you want to discuss the decentralization of the government mini monopolies that is the cable companies, I'm with you, I'm all for ending government inteference in the market, but then again, if everyone had to lay "the last mile"., our telephone poles will start to resemble the Favelas of Brazil.

    Do we want that?

    a) You'll have to prove that the government wants "content control." I never heard such a thing as that.

    b) Please explain why that is relevant and why anyone should care?

    It was the picture of everyone running a "last mile" I wanted to convey.

    Of course you do. Government, in its endless pursuit of power and control wants to control how the internet is used. This is the first step.

    a) The topic of this thread; "Thread: Congress probing White House role in FCC chief's net-neutrality plan".

    b) What plan? Whose plan? There is no plan. This policy statement by the FCC is only the start, to wit;

    This fight is far from over, however. Reclassification is essential, but let’s keep our eyes on the prize: According to Chariman Wheeler, the new rules will be “the strongest open internet protections ever proposed by the FCC. These enforceable, bright-line rules will ban paid prioritization, and the blocking and throttling of lawful content and services. I propose to fully apply—for the first time ever—those bright-line rules to mobile broadband. My proposal assures the rights of internet users to go where they want, when they want, and the rights of innovators to introduce new products without asking anyone’s permission.” - source

    c) ...says the blind man......

    so there should never be questioning of this administration, any questioning is akin to a benghazi investigation.

    yes, they pay lipservice to net neutrality while taking over the internet. lol

    at least you found something at least remotely related to net neutrality even if by no concious effort of your own.

    a) because they want to apply the Fairness Doctrine to internet content and they will decide what's "honest, equitable, & balanced".
    b) the IRS adventure is an example of how the Federal Government can use a Law discriminately through their own extra-legal criteria. Doing it by regulation is even more insidious.

    Pax, if this gets implemented you should be very concerned.
    If not now, then when the next POTUS comes along.
