NET NEUTRALITY & MERGERS  Comcast and Time Warner Merger. A monopoly?  Net Neutrality could change the fundamental way the web works Anxiety over ISPs slowing or blocking access to Netflix and other bandwidth gluttons has surged since a federal court gutted FCC net neutrality rules last month. In the wake of the ruling, there appears to be nothing stopping Verizon, for example, from charging Netflix a toll to transmit data. Verizon, the plaintiff in the case, recently told The Washington Post: “We treat all traffic equally, and that has not changed.” But legally, it seems, the telecom giant is free to change its mind. - Wired 02.12.14, http://goo.gl/mhQnr8
