I’m still hung up on the “imaginary threat” part, too. Who can forget the early 80s when the government broke up Ma Bell into smaller companies because of anti-trust violations. The telecoms aren’t do-gooders here. They’re cut-throat corporations.
The 8 companies Ma Bell was broken into have been buying each other and now we’re back down to three. One of them, Verizon, just bought Yahoo and AOL to be renamed Oath. How much priority are they gonna give their new Oath baby? As much as they possibly can.
Verizon owns their roads, their trucks, their goods. Websites like tcrbang.com will most likely be stuck in the coming traffic jams.
I’m sure glad that five people from the FCC got to vote on and determine the fate of Net Neutrality. Of course that’s just what Ajit Pai wanted, being the former Associate General Counsel for Verizon and all. His Christmas bonus depended on it.
