The FCC is planning new net neutrality rules. And they could enshrine pay-for-play. - The Washington Post

What are any of you talking about? Have you even bothered to read for
example the wikipedia article on "monopoly" or are you so solipsistic
that you just make up the entire universe in your head? Do you also
pontificate on quantum physics and neurosurgery when the urge strikes

Sorry but this discussion is so, uneducated, usage of terms which are
not as they are defined in the English or any other language, etc.


But what do you think about the FCC's efforts in regard to "net


Do you agree with CNBC's assessment that the internet has a "fast
lane" and up until now FCC regulations prevented consumers and content
providers from using it under the guise of "net neutrality".

Do you believe there's anything at stake here for you beyond just
nattering about your own personal and peculiar notion of what a
"monopoly" is? Does that really matter to any of this?

I almost believe that this entire flame war on the definition of
monopoly is being fanned by sockpuppets whose job it is to make sure
no one here talks about net neutrality in any effective or at least
meaningful way.

  F.C.C., in 'Net Neutrality' Turnaround,
  Plans to Allow Fast Lane

  The Federal Communications Commission will propose new rules that
  allow Internet service providers to offer a faster lane through
  which to send video and other content to consumers, as long as a
  content company is willing to pay for it, according to people
  briefed on the proposals.


Would someone please define this "fast lane" for me? That would be a
really good start. Preferably the managers of that fast lane because
they surely must be on this

P.S. CNBC is owned by Comcast (or more specifically NBC Universal,
which is owned by Comcast.)
