I am sorry it’s taken forever to respond to this comment. I appreciate your note, Diane. :)
I just missed it among other Medium notifications. Their commenting interface and notification leaves much to be desired. :(
I think the issue isn’t monetizing faster access to the internet. ISPs already do that and that makes sense.
The issue is ISPs deciding which content we see on the internet. To help explain that, here’s an example.
Imagine you are a new start-up — say ClarenceVideo that wants to compete with…
Why would it?
Imagine this — Comcast offers various bundles at $50, $80, $100 and so on.
But, if you buy comcast cable tv package for $70, you’ll get the $50 internet package for free. It’ll just be à la carte website bundling… and is a borderline scary proposition.
Do you see this differently?
