Internet & Networking Well, this is interesting. As some rumours already suggested, Google and Verizon have released a joint proposal for a legislative framework regarding net neutrality. This being Google and all, some of you may expect this to be all flower-farting unicorns darting across rainbows, but sadly, that's not the case. This proposal? Well, it's not good.

I think you are nit-picking. It looks generally good to me. I don't see why broadband providers shouldn't be allowed to use the connection to offer additional services to only their customers, as long as they don't *restrict* the ability of others to use that internet connection.

As for wireless, unlike in a wired environment, wireless bandwidth is a finite shared resource. That is definitely different from the wired internet, even if you can use it for the same things.
