Another crushing blow to the giant ISPs. The Republican pols they bought didn't earn their bribes. A big win for consumers.

The war isn't over, though. If the Republicans win the presidency and maintain control over congress....they will definitely take action to earn those bribes and defeat Net Neutrality, decrease competition and increase your Internet access costs.

 

Court Backs Rules Treating Internet as Utility, Not Luxury - The New York Times

QUOTE a bit: (Be sure to go to the article which has an animated graphic that helps to understand the issue)

WASHINGTON — High-speed internet service can be defined as a utility, a federal court has ruled in a sweeping decision clearing the way for more rigorous policing of broadband providers and greater protections for web users.

The decision affirmed the government’s view that broadband is as essential as the phone and power and should be available to all Americans, rather than a luxury that does not need close government supervision.

The 2-to-1 decision from a three-judge panel at the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on Tuesday came in a case about rules applying to a doctrine known as net neutrality, which prohibit broadband companies from blocking or slowing the delivery of internet content to consumers.
