Democrats introduce net neutrality legislation in Senate and House

Well, the republicans should turn the tables and pass net neutrality! That'd really make those democrats the laughing stick of America!

Re: passage

Physics dictates that some connections will be faster than others. Under net neutrality, the scenario where comcast invests in a fat pipe connection to the BBC is actually encouraged. As it stands now, comcast is motivated to instead throttle the connection speed at their server to Bobsammo.com, so that more of their available bandwidth can be dedicated to BBC. I So, yes, it is more complicated, but it is that complexity that demands the simple solution of net neutrality.
