Inquiring minds want to know why internet techies are concerned about a court judgement handed down yesterday, reported in the Los Angeles Times, Business Section article by Michael Heltzik titled Net neutrality is dead. Bow to Comcast and Verizon, your overlords.
"The Court of Appeals for the D.C. circuit thoroughly eviscerated the Federal Communications Commission's latest lame attempt to prevent Internet service providers from playing favorites among websites--awarding faster speeds to sites that pay a special fee, for example, or slowing or blocking sites and services that compete with favored affiliates." [Emphasis added.]
Or to charge their customers more for "enhanced Internet access" that lets you go to FamilySearch. Literally, there may be a "FamilySearch channel" like HBO that you pay an $20/month on top of your base Internet bill to access." [Used by permission.]
Happy family tree climbing!
