Chairman Wheeler thinks that T-mob's new "customers can get uncapped media
stream data, but only from the people we like" service called Binge On
My take on this is that the service is *precisely* what Net Neutrality
was supposed to prevent -- carriers offering paid fast-lanes to content
providers -- and that this is anti-competitive to the sort of "upstart
YouTube" entities that NN was supposed to protect...
and that *that* is the competition that NN was supposed to protect.
And I just said the same thing two different ways.
Cause does anyone here think that T-mob is giving those *carriers* pride
of place *for free*?
Corporations don't - in my experience - give away lots of money out of
the goodness of their hearts.
