Back on topic: after some additional reading, I am enjoying the irony that, by abdicating the regulation of the Internet, the FCC opened the doors for states to regulate it within their borders, which will result in a patchwork of local laws and statutes that will make it difficult for telecommunications companies to do anything but observe NN. This kind of situation, BTW, is exactly why the FCC was created in the first place. I wonder how many execs at AT&T, Comcast, et. al. have realized exactly how they shot themselves in the foot by making their puppet regulators do this.
