Two-Tiered Internet

The LECs are very smart and have mastered the art and politics of getting what they want in Washington. They first cajoled the FCC and then the government to neuter the Telecom Act of 1996. By doing this they basically repealed competition in the broadband markets.

Now they are seeking to have a dual-tier Internet where they will have the ability to charge content providers for access to high-quality Internet connections. This is a precarious situation for companies like Apple who want to provide video content and others providing VoIP.

I truly hope the tow-tiered system is never allowed to happen.
