Net Neutrality and Unlimited Bandwidth

Man, it pisses me off when I read this or this. Hopefully, the Democrats will put a stop on the net un-neutrality crap and carriers will get a freaking clue.

Other than that, I am awaiting an LG Chocolate KG800 today, for a review. I ordered this model because of its web browser (Teleca’s Obigo) rather than its features (it lacks EDGE, cardslot, 850Mhz and its BT headset support is flaky apparently). I have access pretty much to every mobile browser out there for testing, and Obigo is the only one I have never tested first hand.

Memson, the world does not revolve around the British, so BT means Bluetooth on mobile-related posts of mine.

Y’know, every time I see you write BT, I wonder for a split second why you’re talking about British Telecom (now called BT, tale a look at if you want proof!) Very confusing, especially as you almost always speak of bluetooth in the context of mobile phones..

This is why we need competition no matter what. It’s hard in the mobile arena because of the high fixed costs but that’s what the government is for..

I don’t think net neutrality would solve this regardless of how the dems structured it. This seems more of a way for Verizon to preserve their DSL/FIOS business while still selling EVDO. IIRC the courts had to step in to allow us (consumers) the option of getting DSL without phone service. This was mandated by Verizon (and pacbell I think) for a long time for the same reasons.
