    In December.

    Obama doesnt' believe in a representative republic.

    Just a lot of rules by agencies he controls and who answer to nobody.

    It's making you carry another provider's traffic on your network, crone. You develop the backbone and they use it as they wish.

    Really?

    That's what you think it is?

    And just who do you think developed "the backbone" in the first place?

    Sprint, Verizon, etc.

    Don't embarrass yourself by claiming their 3g or 4g networks owe their exsitence to the internet Al Gore invented decades ago.

    That, and the FCC has no authority over the internet. The SCOTUS already said so. This is a naked power grab by a discredited President who can't get anything passed through the legislative process anymore.

    You're one of those fucknuts who think the internet is a public good, aren't you, fucknuts?

    is that what they're telling you?

    it's not letting corporations block content....

    information is power.

    Why should government tell you what content you must carry on your private network?

    Back down there sonny boy. You could get hurt.

    And yeah..the government developed the telecommunications backbone..and keeps sinking money into it. The FCC should have jurisdiction. Content should not be controlled by people with the most money.

    But they pay you for that use, just like the electrical and telephone grids.

    Who cares? Who is government to demand you give access or provide content on your network?
