    Interesting.

    FYI, the C-Span feed is far more stable than the FCC feed.

    Hmm.....the private sector option is working better than the public one.....

    So there you go.

    The internet is now a public utility.

    Well it was good while it lasted.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    The internet certainly isn't going to end but you can reasonably expect sites like this one to become highly regulated if they collect any revenue from web traffic or subscriptions.

    Re: Live feed to the FCC vote on Net Neutrality.

    Time will tell, however the goal here was to prevent content providers from creating unequal access to content producers, which was likely to happen. Sites like Netflix, Facebook, etc will have just as much access to the internet as everyone else.

    If Comcast and other providers had their way, they would charge more for certain people to distribute their content than others. This would effectively capitalize the Internet instead of creating a free and equal internet.

    Both sides of the argument have their ups and downs, but I'm siding with this decision. Internet should not be a right accessible to those with the most money. I don't trust content providers, Comcast has proven time and time again how willing they are to **** with their customers just because they can. I don't trust the FCC either. So it comes down to the lesser of evils here.

    Re: Live feed to the FCC vote on Net Neutrality.

    ISP providers are, themselves, a regulatory body because they can control who and what goes over their connections. This action by the FCC (assuming our idiot Congress doesn't overrule it) limits their control and helps new companies and ideas to have equal footing with the communication giants.

    The fact that ISP's are so vehemently opposed to this decision should say it all.
