FCC Chair Sounds Like He’s Going to Ignore President Obama’s Plan to Save the Internet

Wheeler was described by the Post, which relied on anonymous sources, as “visibly frustrated.” He is said to be going ahead with his own proposal, which would offer companies like Comcast and Verizon the ability to charge a premium for access to Internet “fast lanes.” No matter how he describes it, and he has tried many times to put the shine on this pig, there’s nothing neutral sounding about “fast lane.”

Phi Beta Iota: In the absence of an honest informed Congress, the President is impotent on this one — Internet providers are improperly classified due to past ignorance and corruption within Congress; until their classification changes, their corruption is legalized crime, similar to but must smaller than the legalized crime that characterizes everything about Wall Street. It merits comment that the FCC is not thinking about the need for elevating the entire US infrastructure to the point where it can move Big Data (it takes a petabyte three years to go over an average existing pipe).
