    Good news, but for how long? I fear Big Brother will eventually get "his" way.

    uh really? net neutrality is GOOD! I will see how happy you are once net neutrality is defeated and your ISP decides that this board isn't worth carrying or that you have to pay an extra $20 a month to access your web-based email

    also many places have no competition. comcast and cox have monoplies in most areas and if you dont like their service once net neutraltiy is gone then you are fucked.
