    Lovely, the Party of love and tolerance comes shining through again.



    FCC Chairman Ajit Pai cancels Consumer Electronics Show appearance over death threats
    The nature of the threats are unclear, but it is the second time in recent weeks Pai has dealt with imminent security concerns.
    The FCC briefly halted its meeting in December and evacuated the room in response to a security scare as the commissioners were about to vote to repeal the Obama-era net neutrality rules.

        Who wins? Government regulation or free markets?? Very interesting. The big government types hate giving up control.

          So I went and found the bill and read it. Here it is in its entirety: https://nebraskalegislature.gov/Floo...ntro/LB856.pdf

          There's a recurring theme in there that basically negates everything and makes this a feel good bill that actually does jack shit:

          Reasonable network management shall not be considered a violation of this section.
          "No I'm sorry sir, we aren't throttling your connection because you're watching netflix. You're just using more bandwidth than you pay for, and it's necessary to manage that so other people can have the bandwidth they pay for"

          Wouldn't be surprised to see ISP's introduce more stringent data caps as a way to manage data use and still be in compliance with this law.

            Well now that's nice. So some Zorro equivelent gets to decide what's "reasonable".
