Net Neutrality – A Victory

Finally, some good news! At least in the US of A 🙂 It’s probably coming to the EU soon and then, hopefully, the whole world. Remember how I went on and on about it before? (I know, I know, I get stuck in my ways.)

Well, finally, the FCC approved net neutrality rules and reclassified broadband as a utility (such as electricity and water). The whole set of regulations has not yet been released, and there is already a conspiracy brewing up about it, but I’ll try to stay positive for now, and enjoy this victory, knowing it is not the end, but only a small step in a really long road…

A sad day

Back in 2007, I discovered about Net Neutrality and posted about it in this blog post. That was 7 years ago. Since then, we heard more and more about it in the news and finally arrived to today. Sadly, it’s as good as dead. The first hit is Netflix (oh Netflix, how I loved you before this, should I cancel my subscription now?). Read a good report about it here http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-switch/wp/2014/02/23/comcasts-deal-with-netflix-makes-network-neutrality-obsolete/
