Tom Wheeler, why did you abandon net neutrality?
The abandonment of strict net neutrality by FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler makes it harder to maintain a bulwark against all the forces that wish to undermine it. No matter how you phrase it, the proposition that we will create fast lanes -- without slowing other lanes -- is more a figment of the imagination than a reality. If we merely end up with some lanes that have never been slowed alongside those that have been dramatically speeded up, we'd have a se vere two-tier system that would force many Internet users to pay. The public Internet should remaina utility in existence for the good of the general public, not some gatekeepers capable of imposing a two-tier system and collecting for it.
