Point To Ponder 21: FCC and Net Neutrality

The Police Podcast

Release Date: 02/26/2015

Today is the day that the Internet has changed forever with a 3-2 ruling by the Federal Communications Commission in favor of Net Neutrality.

Is that an over the top statement or is it the reality?

I have no idea. Mainly because no one has been allowed to see what the rules containied in the 322 page document are. Now that the vote is in and net neutrality wins, we can see what the rules will be.

I have no informed opionion on this becuase most of what I could base that on has been politcial or business rhetoric. 

Do I want a fair Internet that is equally accessible for all? Sure I do. Do I like that there will be regulations created to do that now? Not really. Even if there is a base rate on the access, you could be taxed through the nose on the data you pull in. 

Oh, and how do we all feel about regulatory industries already? Some good, some bad.

Who knows. But as the next few days pass it will be very interesting to see where this all goes.
