DOJ Against Net Neutrality
The Justice Department has weighed in on net neutrality. Apparently it's bad. Telecoms would have no incentive to expand their networks in a net neutral world. Even worse, the cost of any expansion would likely be thrust upon consumers. As anticompetitive conduct isn't defined or apparent in the way the Internet transport is maintained, so regulation is premature. Jinkies.
Apparently, then the future of the Internet in America (and Britain) will likely look a lot like cable with basic, expanded basic, and premium sites. The only problem is that no one knows what content will fill the premium sites. But from the DOJ's point of view, that's probably a good thing. There you have it.
