Goodbye net neutrality

2014-01-14 16:42:13.89828+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia: Argued September 9, 2013, Decided January 14, 2014: No. 11-1355: Verizon, appellant v Federal Communications Commission, appellee, Independent Telephone & Telecommunications Alliance, et al., intervenors.

Or: The end of network neutrality, Internet startups and web site providers are going to get charged by AT&T and Verizon to deliver content to customers, and we're going to see far less peer-to-peer sorts of traffic on the net.

Which essentially means that the Internet as the innovation platform that it has been for the past 20 years is over.
