Ok, you’ve seen a few posts about Net Neutrality from me. It’s REALLY REALLY important. Remember this phrase, “Internet Service Providers need to be classified as “common carriers” just like a phone company”, or else you can kiss everything you know about the internet goodbye. FOREVER. (Why forever, because the Supreme Court does not make a habit of saying they were wrong about a decision) “Common Carrier” status from the FCC means that your internet service provider HAS TO deliver your internet the same for all sites – it cannot slow some down that it does not like – for instance, Comcast can’t slow down Google to a crawl and start its own super fast search tool. It must treat all internet sites equal.
