Re: Weekly Std report against regulation...
said by Linklist:Unfortunately, I don't see how there could even be the threat of something like this in the near term. With congress firmly in the pockets of the telcos, any suggestion of a taking like this would be laughed out of the building. For gosh sakes, most of congress can't even get it's mind around net neutrality.
and the eminent domain argument was meant to be a threat and not reality.
I can't even see a completely democrate (house, senate, white house) government even entertaining something like this.
Absent this, we need to put line sharing back in and enforce it; this includes cable internet and fiber.
Otherwise, all we will have is a slow, expensive, stagnant internet controlled by the incumbents.
