A US Appeals court forbade the FCC from interfering with Comcast’s decision to throttle BitTorrent traffic.
You know, this net neutrality debate will end up resembling the one over health care. We’ll reach a stage where the FCC’s powers to prevent ISPs from ‘tiering’ service quality will be significantly curbed, leaving customers worse off – they’ll have (more) choice but won’t necessarily like any of their options. Then perhaps there’ll even be calls for a net-neutral public option.
Of course, this will probably also make Google even more attractive as an ISP. (Perhaps eliciting more dramatic stunts than this.)
