Verizon does not like the network neutrality rules it wrote Sometimes disaster is the best way to bring about change. Forget network neutrality. Let the cable companies, mobile telecoms, and others build the walled gardens and tiered services. Let them discriminate. Just remember to lock up a nice archival paper book with details on what the internet was like before you let them be free. In the year 2031 we can open up the book and do a comparison between 2011 and 2031. If we do not like what we see, we can change it. I doubt we will like it. But maybe if the corporate supporters in all political parties have members who end up being managed and walled too much, maybe we will then be able to get real open internet neutrality.
