Replying to:  even if we disagree on where the regulation comes from by mkl4466   Jan 28, 2011, 8:53 PM

No, you're thinking of it only one way

Net neutrality is also the path of HARD data caps, of your phone calls dropping because the guy next to you is streaming porn 24/7, and it's the path to higher rates for everyone.

Net Neutrality, as in One IP costs the same to you as a user to access as the other IP is a good thing. But that's not what's going on here. If you really think that's all the government's going to do, then you really need to look at other things they try and "regulate."

Government regulation in the tech world is a LOSE for consumers. Full stop. Yes, companies trying to tier websites is a bad thing. But giving over that control to an organization that has NO MOTIVE to be efficient, keep customers happy, and is too laden with red tape to change when needed is not a "better alternative."
