Nick Heer wrote a terrific response to Ben Thompson on the FCC’s move to overturn Obama era net neutrality regulations:
Even if you believe that the American broadband market is
sufficiently competitive — it isn’t — that ISPs can be trusted
to not discriminate against some forms of traffic once given the
freedom to — doubtful — and that existing regulatory structures
will allow any problems to be fixed on a case-by-case basis, it
still seems far more efficient to prevent it in the first place.
There’s an opportunity to treat internet service as a fundamental
utility; let’s keep it that way, whether that’s through Title II
classification or an equivalent replacement.
