The concept of Net Neutrality sounds great at first glance. I'm mean, who could possibly be against it? Well, I am. Proponents fear large companies like AT&T, Verizon, Com Cast etc regulating their bandwidth, therefore crushing competition on the internet and therefore the freedom of creativity. The answer to their fears is the FCC. Who will ensure the net remains neutral. The flaw in this logic is the FCC is neutral. It is not. The FCC is influenced by those with political power. These large companies spend large amounts of money in Washington protecting their interests. When threatened, they will use their power to stop the competition. Crazy? The FCC initially ruled IN FAVOR of AT&T and against Hush-A-Phone: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hush-A-Phone_v._United_States. FCC != Net Neutrality
