Comcast VS FCC

Ouch, I don’t know how I missed this. So Comcast wins the right to tell you what data packets (That you paid for) come to your computer first.

Basically, a site like Hulu (who might have a partnership with Comcast) will work well, but Youtube (Google owned) may not. They now have the right to throttle network traffic as they see fit. This brings up some really interesting implications with the NBC merger. “… when the same company produces the programs and runs the pipes that bring us those programs, we have a reason to be nervous…”

I would switch ISPs if Comcast wasn’t the only game in town. How is this not a monopoly?

Obama, please fix this.
