As a former comcast user I can tell you how annoying comcast was with their throttling of the internet. I pay for it then I would like to do as I please. Comcast has been known as a ISP that throttles their customers and they got scolded for it. Now comes along the FCC Chairman and he is getting more annoyed with it too...

FCC Chairman To Smack Down ISPs That Throttle Data

The new FCC chairman has clearly had enough of these games. In just a few hours, he'll spark up a speech at The Brookings Institute, where he will "propose a new so-called net neutrality rule Monday that could prevent telecommunications, cable and wireless companies from blocking Internet applications." He isn't expected to really dig into many details, but the message is clear: he wants the power to be re-adjusted from the ISP to the consumer, and he wants all that "unlimited access" that we're paying for to really be "unlimited access." Specifically, the new guidelines will act to "prevent the operators from discriminating, or act as gatekeepers, of Web content and services."

This doesn't just pertain to internet users but also to cell phone users. Hummm AT&T not allowing certain apps - YES.

I saw this article on Wired and nearly screamed with joy. It's about time that the FCC push for net neutrality.

Yeah no joke it was a on going battle I had with comcast which is why as soon as I could get DSL in my area I jumped off the comcast boat. There needs to be some sort of regulation on it. If you pay for it you souldn't be held back.
