Net neutrality a reality: FCC votes to bring Internet under utility-style rules

Good news! The little guy won this one.

If there was real competition with broadband, we might not have needed this... but there is not nearly enough competition when it comes to broadband.

Burgess Responds to FCC Regulation of the Internet

Washington, D.C. - Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX), chairman of the
House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade, today
issued the following statement in response to the announcement from the Federal
Communications Commission that it will implement regulations of the Internet:

"The Internet for decades has been an open frontier for limitless free speech,
innovation, creation, business and economic growth and, importantly, immeasurable
amounts of free information at our fingertips.

"The Internet is one of the very last spaces we can access in our daily lives
without the burdensome intrusion of the federal government. Because it has not been
regulated until now, it has been one of the success stories of our modern time in
terms of boundless freedom, opportunity, diversity and innovation. Regulation of
this space by unelected Washington bureaucrats is the nail in the coffin for
American ingenuity. Sadly, because of the FCC's ruling today, it is only a matter of
time when the Internet - like everything else - is no longer a story of freedom and
advancement, but of big government, divisiveness, red tape and consumer frustration
that does nothing to improve American competitiveness and growth."

Typical GOP drivel.

Small start-ups and large Internet companies want net neutrality so they can compete and innovate without getting messed over and extorted by big telecom....

... and hopefully more small towns will now be able to provide broadband for citizens without being sued by big telecoms because they see it as a threat to their power and dominance.

Care to tell us where you are getting this information? I know it is what your friend Obama and his puppets are spewing. I have been in the Telcom industry for over 40 years and your statement is totally opposite of my findings and experience. Company's are willing to pay for the speeds and bandwidth they require to efficiently move their data and will pay for the priority services.

The reason this is being done is so Obama can create another revenue stream by now adding a tax onto everybody's Internet Service which now falls under the Telecommunications Act...... Have you noticed that they are not even mentioning the tax side of this? Just wait it will be here before we know it.

Sure... from articles about net neutrality and why tech companies want and support it.

I'm not even going to respond further...... that's just dumb and shows you're not able to discuss anything reasonably. This is not about Obama... I don't know why you and so many others have to make everything about him... oh yeah, that's the typical GOP mantra... "evil Obama supports it so we are against it because it must be bad" nonsense.

Net neutrality is only supposed to effect the "last mile" and no data can receive priority treatment, in fact the net must give certain traffic priority within the data packet structure in order to deliver time sensitive packets such as video and voice communications. These cannot be delayed or it affects the quality of service (QOS) which is the reason the internet cannot be "neutral" and was never designed to be. Every single business sets priority levels for their data transmissions with setting in their switches and routers so the most important information is delivered first. With the proposed restructuring it will make no difference in how the data packets are prioritized by the sender as they will have to be treated the same at final mile delivery thus delaying the most sensitive packets such as those mentioned above.

Happy that you read "articles" I actually speak with Senior Executives from both large and small corporations and not one of them spoke in support of it.

Go ahead run and hide, why is it you will not mention the obvious tax implications that everybody will have to pay. This is about the Obama administration and what they want to force on the American people as they feel that they have a need to control the internet and free enterprise. This is nothing more than another tax and revenue stream for the Fed's by turning the Internet into a public utility. Even you must be able to see that....

100+ tech companies send letter to FCC, say innovation demands net neutrality
Report: Corporate Giants Like Visa and Ford Support Net Neutrality
New poll: Republicans and Democrats both overwhelmingly support net neutrality

As for taxes, some taxes are worth paying for. I know the GOP's stance is akin to "all taxes are bad and evil", but that's just not realistic, though it makes for good fodder and good politics for their voters.
