Carriers might be able to charge differently depending if you are using YouTube or Skype, after all. The net neutrality rules might not fully apply to wireless carriers, citing the openness of Android, of all things...

Just another way the government isnt helping the people, and trying to lock down things they can look at and accuse us of being domestic terrorists I think.

And this is why I'm so pissed at Google, who with Verizon, supports not having Net Neutrality on handsets...

Just checking, but still no cure for cancer, right? Seeing all this effort going into this kind of pointless program that benefits no one leads me to believe that we've fixed every problem in the world. Still no cure for cancer though...

"every time and in every way that the telecommunications careers have had power or control, we the people wind up getting screwed..."
Wow, you think he's let the cat out of the bag that he really believes government is the solution? I will never, as long as I live, understand why some people think that the people in our government are more trustworthy than the people in suits at a company. Don't you realize when it comes to a company, YOU HAVE A CHOICE on whether to do business with them or not. It's like that jackass woman in California who its suing McDonald's over happy meal toys. Don't go to McDonald's if you don't like what they do. It's a free country. What choice do you have when some know it all politicians write some bill that sounds really great because they told you what you wanted to hear, and once done, its going to be next to impossible to undo? Where's the choice in that? You get it now? When government does something like this, we're all screwed. If you let the private sector be (for the most part), you have a choice of whether to participate or not.

Don't kid yourself, there is choice left in the business world where monopoly is king. Government or private sector, we're still all screwed.
