I think hitting consumers with more pay walls won't end well for corporations. At the same time, the organizations lobbying for net neutrality aren't exactly toothless either. Google, Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook, Ebay, Yahoo, Twitter, Netflix... All vocally support net neutrality. It's really the telecom companies VS. every company that's built on the internet. Even if they get some of their regulatory victories, there's still a lot standing between telecom companies and net neutrality. This is a battle of inches that takes place over decades. In 4 years we could have a new president and new regulations.

Thanks. I read the article.

Here's what I think. While it states in the article that he is "for a free and open" Internet, and that he supports "the basic principles" of Net Neutrality, he and the others of the FCC have done nothing about T-mobile's Binge-On data plan. The other major carriers and ISPs are offering their versions of such plans.

Binge-On and others like it, create an un-open and un-free Internet. If Ajit Pai is not willing to enforce the "the basic principles" of Net Neutrality," and if he's not willing to safeguard a "free and open" Internet, then he's already failing us.

And it looks like he's already been confirmed, so we're a bit late, there....

At the very least, we need to tell politicians not to turn Net Neutrality into a partisan issue. Because they will surely muck up the Internet.
