FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, despite weeks of backlash, still wants to allow Internet Service Providers like Comcast and Verizon to “offer” different levels of service to internet companies, although he refused to call them a “fast lane” and a “slow lane” and refused to recognize how those arrangements up the food chain affect consumers and a neutral internet.
He is refusing to recognize reality.
The title of this thread is misleading.
Instead of charging more of the download hogs, why not give rate breaks to those who use less?
They've even threatened to use the "nuclear optiom" (returning to Title ll) as a last resort.
Why is the obvious solution (it seems common sense to me that internet connectivity is a telecoms service, just providing data instead of voice) a last resort "nuclear option"?
