I guess nobody bothered to read the GigaOM article. Higginbotham relies on the FCC's Net Neutrality Rules as the basis for filing a complaint about ISP caps and metering practices.
But of course those rules have been appealed to a federal district court so their status is up in the air. I don't think the rules have been suspended pending the outcome of the litigation, but I think the FCC is taking a wait-and-see attitude before going all-out to enforce rules that may later be overturned. I think that is a prudent approach.
I can understand why others might not feel that way. But before you vent, at least read the article and educate yourselves. Venting for the sake of venting accomplishes nothing.
Those rules will never see the light of day. The problem with that is the FCC lakes control over the Internet. the Internet was defined by them by Information Services NOT communication services.
The FCC's job also was NEVER to police the Internet nor TV, nor Telephone. They're job was to police the airwaves for radio stations. Instead it's expanded and now they just do what they want when they want. 95% of their "rules" can be over turned in court if people really wanted to push them. And Companies do that know that the FCC is over steping its boundries.
