There's Nothing Free About the Net--We're Losing an Important Freedom
"Imagine if the Post Office (or FedEx, or UPS, or DHL, or any trucking or transport company) were legally prohibited from charging more for delivering some stuff sooner than other stuff."
What exactly is the cause to block apps? What "unique technical issues" do wireless companies have that wireline companies don't have? It seems it would solve all of our problems if we left things up to the users of the internet. Keep content free to live up to the expression of democracy. People will still be willing to pay to use the internet, but paying more to get specific sites will not do.
