First of all… congrats to everyone who raises a little hell over this. At least it was noticed. Now… this is still a crock of shit and there’s more fight to be done for #NetNeutrality as this only says the FCC “will scrutinize the deals to make sure that the broadband providers don’t unfairly put nonpaying companies’ content at a disadvantage”.In short, they can still unfairly put nonpaying companies’ at a disadvantage. But if you have enough lawyers you can take it up with the FCC. Then the likes of Comcast, Charter, etc can just lawyer up til you’re out of money.
On the plus, “the new draft will “invite comments” regarding broadband’s status as a public utility”; that could be a big win.
