Hey, the official plan to turn the Internet into an "information service" (ala cable TV) has just been released: http://transition.fcc.gov/Daily_Releases/Daily_Business/2017/db0427/DOC-344614A1.pdf Lots of legalese in there, but the Verge has a good article up on the document. Some quotes: Rather than undoing the net neutrality order wholesale, the FCC is essentially splitting it up into two parts: one part undoes the legal authority used to implement net neutrality — a classification known as “Title II” — and the other part asks whether or not it should keep the rules, like no blocking or throttling websites, that were implemented. ... The possibilities range wildly. At the most lenient, the FCC could choose to do nothing and implement no net neutrality protections at all. That’s a real possibility, as the commission seems pretty skeptical that internet providers could actually do anything to harm consumers or web companies. In its draft proposal, the commission says there is “virtually no quantifiable evidence of consumer harm,” then goes on to ask questions like: has anything actually gone wrong? Are codified rules even necessary? And, “when is ‘throttling’ harmful to consumers?” http://www.theverge.com/2017/4/27/15456472/fcc-reveals-net-neutrality-killing-proposal So yeah, enjoy your net while you've got it. We're all about to be defined-down from people communicating over the net to simply people "consuming" it.
