uncertainity --created WITHOUT net neutrality, not WITH...

funny that (self-serving) Verizon thinks that net neutrality will create "uncertainty" in the market, when it creates exactly the opposite. A level playing field establishes CERTAINITY. Its the possibility of ISPs and carriers charging arbitrary companies and services more or less and the power to squeeze them, that's what would create uncertainity... and what needs to be prohibited by regulations.

I agree, Net nutrality is a good thing, Although I can understand why Verizon is upset, but If I pay for this much data at this speed. Then why are you throttling my data when I'm, say, watching Netflix or any other video site, when it runs twice as fast doing anything else, or if I am watching something similar to Vcast video, you don't throttle my speed. So pick a speed and let the consumer use that speed for whatever website he chooses.

Although, providers are upset because with this net neutrality law, it could cause the network to become congested, Many providers limit your speed for this kind of streaming, because for example, if you have several people connected to the same tower all streaming netflix to their phone at 42Mbs, i...

Not 100% sure what side you are on (bad grammar and what not) but it sounds like you are against net neutrality. Assuming you are against it, i dont think net neutrality means what you think it means. This is the FCC telling the ISPs they CANT tell you what to look at online. This is not the FCC controlling what you can do.

If you arent against it..disregard.

Is to bankruptcy of private industry and the creation of 'Internet' as a government controlled 'utility'....they desire this rule because they know it will cause harm to private industry.

The goal here is the acquisition of power by the FCC and little else....

The FCC has been smacked down on this issue 3 times already, both Congress and the courts have made it clear to the FCC that they do not have the authority to regulate the internet, and they CANNOT simply give themselves this authority.

Who needs a legislature, who needs elections, if government agencies can simply seize power by force?

So government agencies can now say 'I declare that I now have the power to....' and this usurpation is applauded in some quarters....

---"The FCC has been smacked down on this issue 3 times already, both Congress and the courts have made it clear to the FCC that they do not have the authority to regulate the internet, and they CANNOT simply give themselves this authority."---

This is obviously a very sensitive issue T-bone and I need to question who you would rather control the regulating of the internet.

Personally, I do not want the carriers regulating the same either. I can see the problems arising from such carrier control. The internet needs to remain open access and unregulated to everyone without restrictions or price tiers. Only the rich would be able to afford "full", not partial access under carrier control. The internet would be used as artificial scarcity...

Sorry, but NO. Its ridiculous to suggest that the FCC wants to "harm" private industry and cause its bankruptcy. Its like saying the reason the FCC mandated number portability or fair ETFs was to "harm" private industry. Indeed without regulated Net Neutrality, the harm will be done by the carriers like Verizon, against companies like NetFlix and Google, and ultimately the consumers.

As usual, it is all about money. Verizon wants to be able to squeeze more money from content distributors like Netflix, even though they already pay their fair share of...
