One of the things that I took into consideration when I voted this year was net neutrality. I’ve actually written to Congressional reps more than once on this one. The criticism against legislating in favor of the consumer– against guaranteeing that all Internet traffic is not throttled, filtered, or otherwise interrupted by ISPs says that the marketplace will take care of itself on this front. Once again, it comes down to trust, but mine is certainly not with the Comcasts and Time Warners and AT&Ts.
It’s good to see that net neutrality will most likely hit the floor in the next Congressional cycle, and I can cross it off my list of “stuff to be concerned about.”
