Net Neutrality: President Obama’s Plan for a Free and Open Internet

I simply do not trust the Feds with a toehold on the internet, and especially not Obama. Given the opportunity to regulate, they’ll find ways and excuses to regulate, control, tax, apply fees, and invade privacy.
The discussion on Saturdays show was absolutely fascinating.
Regardless of opinion, there can only be one solution. The model will be the same used for Cable TV. It will be tier based with three or four packages. Basic, enhanced and top of the line(s). Assistance programs will, of course be offered for the less able to afford it. There will officially be NO throttling, but it will happen as a rule.
Corporate customers will have the usual massive data packages and will be given priority.
Competitors will be allowed on poles and in man holes, but there will be leasing and permission$$ required.
The internet is still in its infancy, as are the rules. I see a future where the FM bands that are now allocated to television broadcasts used for wireless access. That poses problems right now. URL Requests and civilian uploads could easily be done via cell or low power RF collectors, hubbed and then sent to central stations.
