    It wasn't linked to security. It was at their discretion. It could be political, not paying the high fees larger companies could pay or just because they didn't like them. How that would have played out is anyone's guess.

    You're right, it was anyone's guess, but so far the issue really hasn't been a problem (admitted earlier in this thread). The biggest blockers of content on the Internet are governments, not companies. Even if one company blocked content, there are ways around it (VPN, wireless ISP, cell phones, satellite, Tor, etc, etc, etc). Even China has trouble blocking content because there are ways around it. There is also legal avenues (one company can sue another for preventing traffic to their site). There is also the issue of PR and public outcry. There are options. That is why many people are worried about the FCC getting involved with an issue that really didn't exist. I love the Internet, I love that there is so much free expression on it. That explosion of freedom happened once the Internet was commercialized in the early '90's.... it was a good thing. And now even companies that were for Net Neutrality are a little nervous with the new (rather old) FCC rules.

    The only thing I want it more competition at the last mile. This FCC ruling doesn't help that. I read that the other FCC rule that was voted on did allow other companies to use local telcom poles in cities, but local city governments are still big blockers. Choice, not the FCC, can prevent the issue of controlling content. I would much rather see focus on that rather than the FCC stepping in.

    I'm happy that Google is one of the companies making a difference there. Instead of just whining about it, they put their money where their mouth is and are rolling out city-wide fiber.

    You're making things personal that needn't be. Bit oversensitive. There is nothing to keep to myself.
    And I am posting in iMore under the jurisdiction of iMore mods. Two of whom, in addition to Ambassadors, are in this thread. In the Politics subforum in iMore.
