and Verizon, here to "help"
They just want what's good for
First, our policy framework states
that consumers should be able to choose any lawful content, services or
applications they want; in other words, they can choose whatever
Internet service they want, go to whatever
legal Web sites they want, and use whatever software or applications
they want. Our companies have long
supported the FCC's openness principles toward wireline broadband, and
we also believe that blocking and
degrading Internet traffic is antithetical to the principle of openness
and to consumers' expectations...
So, they won't block bartcop.com,

With respect to wireless broadband
networks, we agree that the rapidly evolving wireless Internet is a
kind of network, with unique technical and operational challenges,
demanding different consideration than
wireline networks. Notably, the 4G network that Verizon also is
building on the recently auctioned 700
megahertz spectrum is already subject to open Internet rules. This
nascent marketplace for wireless broadband
should be allowed to develop further before applying a new set of
rules. That said, we believe that wireless
providers should be fully transparent about their practices, and
Congress should regularly evaluate the state
of the wireless market to protect consumers' interests."
How about we fuck a bunch of rules
and leave everything equal?
