Opinion for the day

Save the InternetAfter a continuation of unresolved issues with the speed of my Comcast web access, the fact that they are pushing to make things even worse by fighting Net Neutrality makes me pretty grumpy.

In my estimation, what Comcast and the other large ISPs are pushing for would be similar to the maintainers of our highways arguing the right to sell FedEx exclusive access to the entire left lane of the Interstate system for their trucks (and then being given the right to drive twice the speed limit as the folks in the right lane). This just seems fundamentally wrong.

If you agree, I invite you to visit Save the Internet and say so. If not, help me understand your point of view.
